"The anti-prostitution sting conducted by the Passaic County Sheriff’s Office focused on the corner of Market and East 26th streets, an area in the 5th Ward where streetwalkers regularly try to flag down johns, authorities said.
Alleged customers approached each of the sheriff’s detectives wanting to pay money in exchange of a sexual act.
Edwin, Mack and the other nine men who were charged with solicited and no other offenses were released after being processed, authorities said.
Edwin, 23, and Mack, 22, had been teammates at Paterson Catholic before that school closed in 2010. Edwin finished playing at Seton Hall last year and participated in the National Basketball Association’s summer league several weeks ago. He was named the Big East’s Defensive Player of the Year when he was a senior and won second-team all-conference honors.
Mack was not picked in the NBA draft last month after finishing his college career earlier this year. He was among the 10-top all-time leaders at Rutgers in points, assists and steals."
