Police discovered an online profile advertising transsexual prostitution and arranged the meeting. Oates and Jones face charges of soliciting prostitution, possession of criminal tools. Jones, whom police referred to as a man, also faces a charge of possession of marijuana.
Oates is free on a $10,000 bond, police said. Jones remains in custody on $3,500 bond. Both pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Oates and Jones are expected to appear on Nov. 13 in Willoughby Municipal Court.
