If the Zumba prostitution affair taught us anything, it's that if you get caught trying to pay for sex, probably everyone and their mother will know about it before you're even prosecuted. In that tradition, Nassau County just released the photographs of 104 men who tried to solicit undercover cops in a sting dubbed by law enforcement officials "Flush The Johns."

The month-long operation nabbed men as young as 17 and as old as 79, all by having cops pose as prostitutes on the sketchy website Backpage.com. From the Nassau County DA's office:

The NCPD placed online ads on Backpage.com advertising escort services provided by both women and men. Each ad provided a phone number, and patrons called to arrange a rendezvous with an escort at a local hotel or motel where undercover officers had wired rooms with cameras. When the johns arrived, they met an officer posing as a prostitute, and once money was offered for sex, they were arrested and charged.

All 104 arrested have pleaded not guilty.

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice said in a statement that women who are sex workers "too often remain the prime targets in prostitution investigations while the johns who fuel the exploitation are treated as mere witnesses." The sting is meant to send a message to johns that they will be held responsible. "We know that the commission of this specific crime is dramatically affected by the perceived risk of getting caught," Rice said.

However, one defense lawyer was unhappy, "It's vindictive. These individuals have been humiliated, and now their families will be humiliated, too." Another lawyer, Brian Griffin, who represents a few of the accused, said, "This is a manufactured crime. You can't solicit a prostitute who doesn't exist. At the end of the day the charges will not survive legal scrutiny." Griffin previously sued Nassau County over its drunk driving Wall of Shame.

For now, you can see the mugshots—all 104 of them—on WABC 7's gallery.
