The operation is part of the department’s “end demand” approach to combating street-level commercial sex trade. As a result, officers took three men into custody, and they were charged.

Nathan Weingartner, 40, Machesney Park: Solicitation of a Sexual Act

Andre Nelson, 52, Madison, Wis.: Solicitation of a Sexual Act, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Suspended/Revoked License

The charges against Evens, Weingartner, and Nelson are merely accusations. The men are considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.
