The Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office arrested a 28-year-old Little Falls man for a Crow Wing County warrant Monday after he failed to appear in court on a prostitution solicitation charge last month.

Kevin Michael Desmet Groseclose, 28, faces a gross misdemeanor for soliciting prostitution in a public place after he was arrested as part of a May law enforcement sting. Groseclose was scheduled to appear before Judge David Ten Eyck on Aug. 14, but a bench warrant was issued when he did not show up.

He was arrested on the warrant at 12:30 p.m. Monday and appeared in court 8 a.m. Tuesday, where he was appointed a public defender and assigned his next court date for 1:30 p.m., Oct. 19.

In May, Groseclose, was one of the men arrested at a Baxter hotel after responding to a fictional advertisement placed by Baxter police on the "Escort" section of an online classified advertising website. Seven others were also arrested and charged.

Criminal complaints drafted against the men state each was found with cash equivalent to the arranged price and a cellphone matching the number used to correspond with an undercover officer posing as the fictional woman in the advertisements.

Area law enforcement have conducted two similar operations since, one in June and one in August. Two men were arrested in the second sting and four more were arrested in the third sting. The Crow Wing County Attorney's Office is expected to charge the four involved in the latest operation soon.
