UPDATE (Jan. 19, 2018)– Kristy Short was sentenced to about a year and a half (545 days) in jail, and received 28 days of jail credit.
GREENWOOD, Ind. (July 3, 2015)—A woman, who identified herself as “Sinful Sindy” on an adult website, was arrested on several charges, including prostitution.
Kristy Short, 35, faces charges of prostitution, resisting law enforcement, false informing and escape.
According to court documents, an undercover detective responded to Short’s ad on an adult website. Authorities organized a sting operation at a location in Greenwood Thursday afternoon.
Shortly after the officer identified himself to Short, police said she persisted on getting some air on the balcony before she was taken into custody. Short then jumped from the balcony and fled into a vehicle, driven by 37-year-old Garth Holston. Detectives drew their weapons and ordered the vehicle to stop. Holston complied with the demands, but Short attempted to place the vehicle into drive from the passenger seat, stated the probable cause. Officers said Short then attempted to flee from the vehicle, but she was restrained by police and taken into custody.
Authorities reported Short continued to give them a false name and complained of pain to her ankle. She was transported to Community South Hospital to receive treatment. After using the bathroom, Short reportedly attempted to flee from officers a second time. She was caught in the hospital’s parking lot.
Police said both Short and Holston have outstanding warrants. They were both placed under arrest.
