FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A Fayetteville man has been arrested and charged with bailing a woman out of jail so he could profit from her prostitution.

The Fayetteville Observer reported (http://bit.ly/2cSpqMa) that an arrest warrant states that Ben Johnson Griffin posted bail for a 34-year-old woman in March.

Ads for prostitution involving the woman were placed on a website. The warrant does not say how long she worked as a prostitute for Griffin.

He was arrested Saturday. It was not clear if he has an attorney for the charge.
