NOURSE

FONDA — A Fonda woman was arrested for allegedly prostituting herself while a child was in a different room, according to New York State Police.

Alicia M. Nourse, 29, of Fonda, was charged Oct. 4 with prostitution and endangering the welfare of a child, according to state police.

Police said an investigation was started after Nourse was discovered soliciting men for sex via backpage.com. According to police, tips received from Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers also led them to believe Nourse was at times meeting men at her residence for sexual favors while she had her children present.

Nourse was arrested on Oct. 3 after she was paid for having sex with a man at her residence while a 12-year-old child was in a different room, but present in the home at the time, according to police.

Nourse was ticketed and is expected to appear in Mohawk Town Court at a later date.
