UGA Professor Charged with Prostitution at Norcross Hotel

Under the name "Sasha," Max Reinhart scheduled a thirty-minute session with an undercover Gwinnett detective at Guest House Inn in unincorporated Norcross.

University of Georgia professor Max Roland Reinhart was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on Thursday night on charges of prostitution and keeping a place of prostitution.

According to Gwinnett County Police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith, detectives located an ad in the transsexual escort services section of backpage.com. The subject's name was "Sasha."

Detectives arranged a meeting with "Sasha" at the Guest House Inn, located at 2050 Willow Trail, in unincorporated Norcross.  The room had been rented by Reinhart.

The undercover detective and the suspect came to an agreement of $60 for thirty minutes of "services." Reinhart was then taken into custody.
The keeping a place of prostitution charge comes from the room he rented for the purpose of prostitution.

After several hours in custody, Reinhart posted bond and was released from jail last night. Reinhart listed his address on jail documents as Springdale Street in Athens.

Reinhart is A. G. Steer Professor in Goethe Studies in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies and a well-known scholar.

According to University policy in the the UGA Office of Legal Affairs, "any current employee charged with a crime (other than a minor traffic offense) shall report being charged with such crime to the Office of Legal Affairs within 72 hours of the employee becoming aware of such charge. Failure to report being charged with such a crime may result in appropriate disciplinary action, including termination of employment."

Just because you are a "Conservative" doesn't mean you own "good values". I'm a liberal and I'm proud of the values I have and my children have. If you want to start linking conservatism (which I assume to mean Republican) with values, let's have a discussion about those bastions of conservatism like Newt Gingrich. or maybe Anthony Weiner or Larry Craig. We do agree on one thing - this guy should be banned from any contact with education or America's youth. He also needs some serious help with his makeup and wardrobe...

JC, I'm not going to make assumptions about your values, but you should probably avoid making assumptions about anything until you get a better grasp on the facts... Anthony Weiner was/ is a democrat. A hyper-partisan, ultra-liberal democrat at that. He would be angered by your calling him a conservative.

oh honestly ... as usual, the ‘peachtree corners patch’ readers show their ridiculous biases ... Anothony Weiner has about as much to do with this story and JC’s comments as all the other Republicans on the walk of shame... oh hello Mark Foley from Florida...

And I'm betting your biases are the only ones in the world that are NOT ridiculous. Oh hello Slick Willie, you better put some ice on that!

RT, you should step back from the political scene for a bit. It is taking a toll on you.
