City council member responds to prostitution charge

COUNCIL BLUFFS (KWWL) -- A Council Bluffs City Council Member spoke for the first time since his arrest in a prostitution sting three weeks ago.

"I'm not guilty and I'm anxious for everybody to see the tape that will show exactly what happened," said Council Bluffs City Council member Darren Bates.

Bates spoke outside Monday's city council meeting with his wife at his side. He claims he went to a motel for a massage advertised on craigs list -- that's when the police busted in.

Bates is also a firefighter in Omaha and could face disciplinary action there.
