A 71-year-old Westport woman has been charged with prostitution at a motel in the upstate town of Glastonbury.

Sygun Liebhart of Easton Road was charged last Friday in the Homewood Suites motel in a sting operation staged by police who said they saw the woman's ad for escort services on the website, Backpage.com

Liebhart, billing herself as "Lola," was put under police surveillance based on information in the ad. After she was contacted and agreed to perform sex acts for money, she was taken into custody in her motel room, police said.

Bond was set at $500.
