Election day charges for Mussenden in Holt Ave hooker case

LOS ANGELES — James Mussenden, the former El Monte city manager caught up in a Pomona prostitution sting, will face misdemeanor solicitation charges, officials said Tuesday.

Mussenden, 59, of Glendora, was one of 18 men caught in the Holt Ave. hooker sting on Oct. 15. He likely faces a fine in the case. No court date has been set.

“It’s one count of soliciting,” DA spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said Tuesday. “All the men arrested in the case have been charged with the same count.”

Mussendin, who had been city manager since 2006, resigned his job two days after the arrest. He additionally resigned his post as a commissioner for the Trails of the Valley Boy Scouts council.
