CORPUS CHRISTI - Six suspected prostitutes and one suspected pimp were arrested Friday night as part of sweep in the northwest section of Corpus Christi.
According to police, the six suspected prostitutes were offered the choice to get involved with a new program designed to get them out of their destructive lifestyle.
