    Three men were arrested Saturday in a prostitution sting at a hotel in Norton, Massachusetts.

    James Blandino, 38, of Bridgewater, Michael Hocheiser, 39, of Holliston, and Eben Jordan, 35, of New Bedford, are facing charges of sexual conduct for a fee, solicitation for prostitution, and attempt to commit a crime.

    The sting, conducted at the Extended Stay America Hotel at 280 South Washington Street, was conducted with the cooperation of hotel management.

    Detectives placed advertisements on websites that offered escort services and individuals seeking sex. An undercover police officer answers the texts sent by the three defendants, arranging meetings for sex for a fee.
