PLYMOUTH - A Watertown man, accused of meeting an alleged prostitute on a website that caters to â€śsugar daddiesâ€ť and â€śsugar babies,â€ť will not be prosecuted.
KeithÂ Labbe, 57, of Watertown, was granted a first-time offender program Thursday in Bristol Superior Court. He will be on a pretrial form of probation, known as Accelerated Rehabilitation, until May 31.
If he avoids any new arrests during his probationary period, a charge of patronizing a prostitute filed against Labbe will be dropped.
Labbe, along with Alina Stein, 24, of Bristol, were arrested Feb. 8 after they were found leaving Jayâ€™s Motel, at 40 Main St. in Terryville.
While looking for a vehicle suspected to be involved in an unrelated matter, an officer who was checking the parking lot at Jayâ€™s saw a man who appeared about 60 years old and a young looking female outside the motel.
After investigating, the officer found thatÂ LabbeÂ allegedly paid for a motel room and gave Stein $150 for an unspecified sex act, police said. Police saidÂ LabbeÂ and Stein met onÂ seekingarrangement.com, which caters to â€śsugar daddiesâ€ť looking to meet â€śsugar babies.â€ť
Steinâ€™s case is still pending. She has pleaded not guilty to a prostitution charge.
