According to reports, the incident took place on January 14 in Midvale, Utah where Jeff Archuleta, who was identified as the client of the massage parlor based on court documents, was charged with soliciting a massage parlor prostitute.

At the time of the raid, “He was just finishing up in suite number one. I sent two of the officers in and the male was on his stomach on the table with a masseuse in lace underwear,” Midvale Police Sgt. John Salazar said.

Salazar added, “We read him his Miranda rights twice. The second time because he said he didn’t understand them the first. During the questioning, he said he’d found the place on Craig’s List. He was asked if he’d received any sexual services and he said he had.”

David Archuleta's dad pleaded no contest. He then paid a fine of $582.

David Archuleta, the runner-up of Idol champ David Cook, released his debut album on November 11, 2008. His eponymous album has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide.
