10/31/2017 - OKC, OK -- A Yukon police dispatcher, who was arrested in 2016 for soliciting prostitution, has pleaded guilty.
As previously reported on JohnTV, Ali Razavi, 34, replied to a prostitution ad posted to Backpage.com. Problem is, that ad was posted by undercover police officer with the Oklahoma City Police department's vice unit.
After Razavi arrived at the Biltmore Hotel he reportedly offered a female undercover officer $80 for oral sex. Razavi was then taken into custody and booked into the Oklahoma County jail.
Razavi was subsequently charged in June of 2016 with misdemeanor offering to engage in an act of prostitution.
At the time, Yukon's police chief, John Corn, released the following statement; "We are disappointed to learn that one of our dispatchers from the Yukon Police Department, Ali Razavi, has been arrested by the Oklahoma City Police Department. We are collecting the arrest report and booking information from Oklahoma City and Oklahoma County. Once that information is obtained, we will take the appropriate personnel actions."
Razavi's attorney told the local news media that (in part), this whole order was simply "a misunderstanding" and he "looked forward to clearing his name."
Well, apparently the only misunderstanding that needed to be cleared up was the fact police dispatcher Razavi was actually guilty.
On March 3rd of this year, Razavi pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one year deferred, health checks, a $1,000 fine, $300 VCA and court costs.
