Man acquitted in prostitution case

We are part of The Trust Project.

WINONA — A Rochester man has been acquitted of being a prostitution patron after a two-day trial in Winona.

Jurors found Allen Scott Rasmussen, 40, not guilty of the misdemeanor Wednesday. He'd been charged in July.

He was arrested after responding to an online ad for prostitution, the prosecution claimed, and went to a motel to meet a girl for an hour for $100.

Rasmussen argued that he was there for a massage and not a sexual encounter.
