COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A 38-year-old woman is facing prostitution and sodomy charges after an undercover police bust at a Columbus hotel.

It all went down Sunday afternoon at the La Quinta Inn on Macon Road.

Officers tell WTVM Teri Rigley, from Indiana, was advertising "something real sexy" on the online classified web site Craigslist along with her phone number.

When they called her, they say Rigley told them she was already at the hotel.

An undercover cop says he called her from the parking lot and she gave him her room number.

Once inside, the officer says Rigley threw out prices- $200 for an hour and $130 for half an hour.

They agreed on half an hour for oral sex and exchanged money, according to police.

That's when the officer says he gave the signal to his team that the deal was done and they arrested Rigley, charging her with prostitution and the solicitation of sodomy.

She is being held in the Muscogee County Jail.

She is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in Columbus Recorder's Court Monday at 2 PM.
