Three men have been charged with prostitution after an undercover child predator sting operation in Lakeville last week.

According to KSTP TV, 28-year-old Aiyaz Hussain of Eagan, 39-year-old Matthew James Parten of Apple Valley, and 40-year-old Jamie John Huth of Lake City were each charged with prostitution.

The criminal complaint said that Huth responded to an ad on a social media app. When the undercover officer said the girl was 15 years old, Huth replied that age was just a number. He was arrested at the hotel.

Lakeville police also said that Hussain responded to a Craigslist ad and agreed to meet the undercover officer even after being told the child's age.

Parten allegedly responded to an ad of a 40-year-old father advertising for his 13-year-old daughter and responded he was OK with 13. He was then arrested at the hotel..

All three face up to five years in prison and $10,000 in fines if convicted.
