A longtime aide to freshman Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi of New York was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor Friday for soliciting a prostitute.
The age of consent in New York is 17.
Brindisi’s office said Stemen, who served as the congressman’s district field representative in Utica, was fired on Thursday after it learned of the allegations.
Stemen joined Brindisi’s office following his election victory in November.
Stemen is scheduled to appear in Utica court on Monday morning.
