Dan Salem, the Carroll Taco John’s owner who pleaded guilty Monday to a prostitution charge, faces up to two years in prison when he appears for sentencing in Carroll County District Court on Sept. 24.

Salem, 61, was  accused in May of offering a local woman money for sex. He submitted a written plea of guilty to the charge Monday.

The prostitution charge comes after Salem was arrested six years ago on similar accusations. In May 2006, he allegedly offered to pay a woman $150 twice each week for sex at his restaurant, according to the Daily Times Herald archive. Several area women accused him of making the offers at the time.

It’s unclear what punishment he faced because the records have been sealed from public view.
