A 24-year-old Gates woman, arrested for prostitution last year, has been arrested again.

Gates Police say they arrested Amanda Merrell for prostitution in December 2013 after she advertised for escort services on the internet. Investigators say they sent an undercover police officer to her home where she agreed to engage in sexual activity with him for a fee.

According to police, Merrell continued to advertise for escort services online. Today, police sent another undercover officer to her home where officers say she again agreed to engage in sexual conduct with the officer for a fee.

Merrell was arraigned on the charge and released. She is due in court at a later date.
