LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A 23-year-old man and his mother are among 44 people arrested in a Polk County prostitution sting.

Authorities say Lawson Bracewell III agreed to drive his mom 60 miles from their Deltona home to Davenport last week, knowing she would be paid for sex, in exchange for $50 in gas money. Pamela J. Small allegedly arranged the appointment with an undercover officer through a classified advertising website.

Small is charged with soliciting prostitution, while Bracewell faces charges of profiting from prostitution.
