Tommy Gainey Gets No Jail Time for Solicitation

Tommy Gainey avoids jail time for solicitation sting

Former PGA TOUR winner Tommy Gainey will be avoiding spending time in jail from a solicitation charge that occurred back in December. Tommy Gainey did face charges on solicitation of a prostitute. This happened when the police caught him involved in a large undercover sting called “Operation Santa’s Naughty List.”

The sting then led to more than 120 arrests and it caused Tommy Gainey to earn the possibility of gaining a misdemeanor if he was convicted of the offense.

Consequently, rather than serve jail time, Tommy Gainey is mandated to take a human trafficking class, serve 100 hours of community service, and pay fines that total to $6,218.60.

Tommy Gainey bounced back from the negative incident

Back in December, Gainey was in Polk County, Florida when he offered an undercover police offer money in exchange for them to perform sex acts. Additionally, in leaked police footage you see Gainey offer the woman $60 for a quick visit. The very next day the Polk County Sheriff had a press conference where they focused on Gainey’s arrest.

“He’s married. He told us that he was here for a charity golf event and it was to be, as the next morning tee off. He didn’t make it. He was a scratch…we charged him with soliciting. He missed the tee time the next morning. “

Even with the pending controversy regarding his solicitation arrest, Gainey has bounced back. He won the Korn Ferry Tour in the Bahamas last month. The impressive reputational bounce-back wasn’t lost on Tommy Gainey after his Korn Ferry Tour win, just one month after he had been arrested and released on bail for the prostitute solicitation.

“With the injuries I’ve been through, the other troubles I’ve had, I’m very lucky and very blessed,” Gainey said after his victorious performance.
