Alberta politician pleads guilty to solicitation of prostitutes in Minnesota

December 18, 2013 - 4:31 PM

EDMONTON - An Alberta politician has pleaded guilty to a charge of trying to hire prostitutes in Minnesota.

Court documents filed in St. Paul say Mike Allen entered the plea Monday to a misdemeanour offence.

The documents show the Fort McMurray member of the legislature was fined $500 and has to pay an additional $500 in court surcharges and fees.

He must also serve one year probation.

Allen was originally charged in July with a more serious gross misdemeanour offence following a prostitution sting by St. Paul police.

He was on government business when police said he phoned an online ad and agreed to pay $200 for sex with two women.
