Prostitution charges were dropped this week against 2004 World Series of Poker Champion Greg Ramer. Ramer was charged with Soliciting Prostitution after he responded to an online ad posted by an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute. When he went to the hotel to meet the prostitute, he was instead arrested. Raymer completed 75 hours of community service and, in exchange, charges were dropped. Ramer was reportedly married at the time of his arrest.
