Charity Director Charged With Soliciting Prostitution

The director of a Half Moon Bay charity has pleaded no contest to a charge of soliciting prostitution after offering a jobseeker $500 to have sex with him.

Sixty-five-year-old Michael David Niece - director of the Coastside Catholic Worker charity - faces up to 10 days in jail when he's sentenced later this month.

He is accused of offering to pay a 35-year-old woman for sex after she sought his help finding a job.

The woman went to the police, who asked her to set up a meeting with Niece.

They recorded the phone call and arrested Niece when he showed
up at the rendezvous point.

Niece and his wife founded the charity in 2000.

It focuses on helping agricultural workers and their families.
