LAWRENCE -- A North Lawrence man has been charged by state police with soliciting sex for payment and forcible touching.

Robert E. Millar, 60, offered two females money in exchange for sex Monday morning at about 10:15, troopers said, and squeezed the buttocks of one of the females.

Millar has been charged with two counts of patronizing a prostitute and one count of forcible touching. The females were not prostitutes and did not accept any money, and state police explained that the law uses the word "prostitute" for anyone who is solicited to engage in sexual conduct.

Millar was processed at the state police station in Winthrop and given an appearance ticket for town court on Feb. 15.
