DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A convicted prostitute who is HIV positive admits to soliciting.

Court officials confirm Vickie West pleaded guilty to engaging to soliciting after a positive HIV test.

She was arrested during a prostitution sting in December.

A loitering charge was dropped.

West faces up to three years in prison when she’s sentenced later this month.
