BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Buffalo man has pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution while he was already out on parole for another crime.

Richard Swiderski, 43, admitted that between June 21 and July 27 of this year, he posted online ads for prostitution and arranged meetings between men and women in exchange for a cut of the profits. 

Swiderski faces up to seven years in prison and will remain behind bars until sentenced in January by Erie County Court Judge Kenneth Case.

*CORRECTION:  An earlier mug shot released by the Erie County District Attorney was the wrong person associated with this story.  The DA's office has since sent out a correct mug shot of Swiderski.
