    This is interesting.
    Member of the Nevada track team - a freshman female - was arrested in a prostitution sting.
    She has been dismissed from the team.
    Two questions:
    I thought prostitution was legal in Nevada? I am really curious as to how she was arrested - not registered or licenses as a hooker?
    Two: They dismissed her? Seriously?
    Are student athletes allowed to work? She was "working" in the off-season. Aside from being arrested, was this really a huge crime?
    I doubt the school would so quick to boot a member of the football team if they were arrested for solicitation or some other misdemeanor offense.

    This smacks of a double standard.

    Before clicking, I thought this would be about a football player, and thus a Fulmer Cup classic.

    The story doesn't say where she was arrested: Reno? Las Vegas? somewhere in California? Also prostitution is only legal in some parts of Nevada and those do not include Las Vegas.

    I thought it was legal in brothels (which are only legal in some counties), but the streetwalkin prostitution was still illegal?

    Did you forget to write this whole post in blue type? You really don't see the problem here?

    Lt. Dangle's undercover vice work finally pays off.
  9. I'm serious.
    She arrested and dimissed.
    She was arrest doiong something that is legal - at least in parts of the state.
    I think it is a unfair double standard. Seriously.

    Do we have any other examples of Nevada athletes being arrested for misdemeanors to compare this too?
  11. I'm sure there are. I think some football players have had misdemeanor arrests. Bet money they remained on the team.

    Looks like this is the university's protocol.
