7/17/2014 (updated 1/3/2018) - OKC, OK -- A Midwest Man, who was busted in a prostitution sting just days before his wedding, has pleaded guilty to the crime - despite his fiancee's initial claims that it was a "misunderstanding."
The last few months have been a real roller coaster for Jason John Weil, 32, who is reportedly originally from North Dakota and lists his Oklahoma employer as OG&E. Weil has gone from the bliss of getting engaged to a beautiful woman to the horror of getting caught up in a prostitution sting, to denying the allegations, only to eventually pleading guilty. And, all while his fiancee stuck it out and eventually forgave and married him.
Back in April of 2014, Weil was one of 14 arrested during a prostitution sting targeting the South Robinson Ave. area – a street with an over 40-year history for the persistent presence of street prostitutes.
The first bit of irony of Weil's arrest is the fact that it happened as a local television news truck was only a couple of blocks away reporting on a new ‘No Hooking Zone’ billboard that had recently popped up in the area. The second bit of irony was the fact that Weil was only about two weeks out from his planned wedding. The last bit of irony is the fact that JohnTV only knows so much personal information about Weil because he has a pretty public social media presence – Weil temporarily deleted his Facebook account soon after his arrest and then re-published months later.
As a public service announcement JohnTV once again would like to remind individuals that…… If you’re going to engage in criminal activity – especially embarrassing criminal activity – it would be best advised if you refrain from participating in social media.
The following are the pics Weil had posted publicly to his Facebook page prior to his prostitution arrest…
While Weil’s then fiancee (and now wife) posted this pic…
Unfortunately, engagement photos were not the only pics Weil was posing for…
According to the official probable cause affidavit (see below), around 3 p.m. on April 15, 2014, Weil was cruising S. Robinson Ave. looking to solicit some anonymous, and most likely infectious, sex from women being sold on the streets.
Weil eventually rolled up to the corner of SW 39th and S. Robinson and proceeded to offer an apparent prostitute $80 for both oral and vaginal sex.
Unfortunately for Weil, the prostitute was actually an undercover female police officer. Weil was shortly thereafter placed under arrest and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail (see mugshot above).
Yes, you heard that right – Weil was only a few days out from marrying (what we’re told from people who know her) a woman who is way, way, way over his pay grade in physical appearance, intelligence and personality.
Mrs. Weil is either the most forgiving or most gullible woman we’ve ever met, because, despite her fiancee’s actions and arrest, she married the dope anyway.
As evident in a text message (see image below) sent by the then soon-to-be Mrs. Weil to an inquiring friend, Jason had apparently convinced her that this entire ‘situation’ could be worked out in short order with the help of a really good lawyer.
Less than a month after the Weil’s said their ‘I do’s’ the whole ‘for better or for worse’ clause became an all too real reality when Jason was officially and criminally charged in Oklahoma County with offering to engage in an act of prostitution.
Apparently the Weil’s definition of ‘misunderstanding’ and ‘clearing it up’ is to plead no contest to the charges and accept the repercussions – because that’s exactly what happened on July 17, 2014.
Beyond the hype and the embarrassment of it all, Jason really didn’t fare too poorly in court….. he received the boilerplate one year deferred sentence (supervised), 20-hours of community service, $100 fine and some court costs. If he doesn’t get in any more trouble then this won’t count as a conviction and he can have it all expunged off his record in a few years.
Personally, we don’t see how a marriage survives after something like this… I mean every time you’re sitting on the couch together flipping through the cable channels Jason has to be holding his breath that Pretty Woman, HBO’s Cathouse, Cheaters or even the Maury Show doesn’t pop up on the screen. Then there’s always those uncomfortable moments when someone mentions infidelity or prostitution. Just seems like a recipe for a lifetime of anxiety.
O’well, hopefully Jason learned a valuable lesson and Mrs. Weil has him on a very short leash!
And Jason, the next time you think about participating in the world oldest professionabuse of women, remember these images….
