 MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A Frederick, Md., attorney who was among four men arrested in a prostitution sting in February will have the opportunity to have the misdemeanor charge filed against him dismissed.

Roger Charles Simmons, 65, was charged with one count of solicitation of prostitution after police said he responded to an Internet adult escort advertisement, according to court documents.

The charge will be dismissed in six months if Simmons is not charged with any jailable offenses in that time, according to a resolution that Berkeley County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Christine Riley presented Wednesday morning to Magistrate Jim Humphrey.

The investigating officer in the case was not at Wednesday’s hearing, but Riley said she was told by defense attorney Kate B. Harding that the officer was aware of the proposed agreement.
