Nashville Councilman Goes to ‘John School’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Metro Nashville Councilman Brady Banks has been cleared of a charge of patronizing prostitution.
The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/KrI4Hg ) reported the Davidson County district attorney general’s office said Monday that Banks had completed the city’s “john school” for first-time offenders.
Banks reached an agreement with prosecutors that he would complete the course and the charge would be dropped.
The first-term council member could still face some political fallout from his Feb. 16 arrest at a city hotel during an undercover Metro Police prostitution sting.
Banks admitted his mistake, but said he would remain in office. Some residents of his district have talked of trying to recall him.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Nashville councilman and the founder of a Sumner County tea party group have been charged with patronizing prostitution.
Councilman Brady Banks and Sumner United for Responsible Government co-founder Matthew Moynihan were caught in a sting on Thursday after responding to an Internet advertisement for an escort service, according to a police account reported in The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/zjh0Tr).
The 33-year-old Banks is the outreach director for Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation and a member of Nashville Emerging Leaders.
Charged with Banks and the 38-year-old Moynihan was 37-year-old Jyotin Arora.
Banks and Arora do not have listed phone numbers, and an email to Banks was not immediately answered. A call to the number listed for Moynihan rang unanswered.
A judicial commissioner set each man’s bond at $1,000.
