— Another man has been charged in the ongoing investigation of alleged prostitution at Janesville’s only strip club.

Ryan S. Arneson, 32, of 2904 Carrousel Lane, No. 4, Janesville, acknowledged paying a Milwaukee woman $100 for oral sex last July, the criminal complaint against him charges.


He was charged with misdemeanor solicitation of prostitution.


The woman—LaShonta D. Nickison, 21, Milwaukee—was a dancer at Screamin’ MeeMees, 402 W. Delavan Drive. She was arrested and charged with misdemeanor prostitution last summer when the investigation began.


Arneson responded to a summons and already appeared in court, so while he was charged, he was not arrested, and no booking photo was available.


He pleaded not guilty.


Further details have emerged concerning the charge against Martin Z. Guerrero, 20, Burlington, whose arrest was reported earlier this week.


Guerrero acknowledged paying $30 to be masturbated by a dancer from Screamin’ MeeMees last July, according to the criminal complaint against him.


So far, 16 people have been charged in the ongoing investigation. More charges are anticipated.
