Canton Mayor busted following Craigslist sexual massage

CANTON, Pa. (18 NEWS) - The Mayor of a small borough in Pennsylvania was busted after a Craigslist massage.

Police say Canton Borough Mayor John Vineski admitted to hiring a woman off of Craigslist and paying her $300 for a sexual massage.

Investigators say the incident took place at his home last September. 

Despite these charges, local residents say they support the Mayor and will continue to back him.

Some, who have known Vineski for years, call him a kind and generous man and argue that law enforcement should be focusing on the area's drug epidemic instead. 

"There's kids dying every day in this town I think we need to worry about that instead of trying to ruin a man's reputation that done nothing more than probably most people have done they just do it in a different way they go to the bar and pay for drinks it's the same thing," resident, Dwayne Buchanan said.

"I'm very sad I've known John for about a little girl used to be our Santa Claus all of our Christmas parties and it saddens me to see that such a great guy really is having his life maybe destroy," resident, Kristie Dibble said. "We're not all perfect we're all sinners and a time that we reach out and care about each other and build each other up instead of trying to destroy each other."

Vineski is due back in court December 13th.
