Everett lewd conduct law to cover espresso stands

Posted: Updated:

EVERETT, Wash. - The Everett City Council voted to extend its lewd conduct law to cover places with drive-up windows, such as espresso stands.

The ordinance will take effect in about three weeks after the city attorney and police figure out how to enforce it.

A number of people at the Wednesday night council meeting were upset the ordinance does not address attire.

The owner of a business near the Grab-N-Go espresso stand, where five baristas have been charged with prostitution, showed a video of women dancing around in underwear. Business owner Rhonda Bremond says the crude behavior must stop.

Police reveal details of investigation leading to baristas' prostitution charges

Five baristas at the Grab-n-Go Espresso, an Everett, Washington coffee stand where baristas wear bikinis, have been charged with prostitution.

Police say the women charged customers to touch their breasts and buttocks, which falls under the city's definition of prostitution.

"Prostitution, that is touching of the body parts for a fee," Sgt. Robert Goetz said.

The charges come after a two-month undercover investigation this summer by Everett police.

Investigators say the women exposed private parts, posed naked for pictures and allowed customers who paid enough money to touch them.

When officers began their investigation back in July, they said they got an eyeful.

In one instance, detectives say they saw the women spray and lick whipped cream off each other. >>More
