According to the report, police were conducting an undercover operation in the area, which is known for prostitution activity, when Benjamin approched undercover officers from Miami and Coral Gables in his white Lexus and inquired the price for a sex act.

Benjamin agreed to pay $30 for the sex act and was told by one of the undercover officers to meet at a nearby motel, the report said.

Benjamin was taken into custody, but refused to answer questions and asked for an attorney, the report said. He was later booked into jail, and attorney information wasn't available.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office said Benjamin worked for the office as an assistant state attorney from September 2005 through November 2011.
