Now Servicing Westchester

It’s not hard to find sex for sale in Westchester. At least it didn’t take me long to find people who offer it. You can try it yourself: log on to Bigdoggie.net, Theeroticreview.com, Eros.com, or
Craigslist.com. If the number of listings for women who are looking to make a buck with their bodies doesn’t overwhelm you—on Bigdoggie.com alone, there were 15 women available in the Westchester/Fairfield area and many more in New York City—the number of reviews from guys willing to indulge them will. Multiple escorts who serve Westchester and Fairfield had more than 50 reviews. And if you’re confused by what you read, it’s not surprising. Escort sites have a language all their own. “GFE,” for example, means “girlfriend experience,” which means that an escort is willing to do anything a “good” girlfriend would do. But that’s just the most commonly used initials; most of the others cannot be described here………………………………..READ FULL STORY

Two people have been arrested in a Craiglist prostitution bust based out of a New Jersey veterinary office.

Somerset County Prosecutor Wayne Forrest and Bedminster Chief of Police William Stephens announced on Wednesday that a two-month investigation dubbed “Operation Net-Vet Harlot” resulted in the arrest of 50-year-old Cathy Rosania and 35-year-old David Baker.

Prosecutors say Rosania was the prostitute and Baker her business manager, or pimp. The office is located in the Pluckemin section of Bedminster Township.

Authorities say the investigation began when a Bedminster detective monitoring the Internet for criminal activity found an ad on Craigslist offering erotic services in the Pluckemin/Bedminster area.The officer responded to the ad and ultimately set up an appointment to meet with Rosania at the veterinary facility, located on Route 202-206 North in Bedminster, where Rosania was employed as a veterinary assistant…..READ FULL STORY http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local&id=6296575

“friendliest madam” is back in business – and even giving cops a helping hand.

Julie Moya, known as “the madam with a heart” because she rescued so many animals before she went to jail in 2005, told the Daily News she helped the NYPD nab a Manhattan man accused of preying on hookers.

Todd Cunningham, 25, was arrested Monday on charges that he trolled for escorts on CRAIGSLIST and posed as a cop so he could rob and molest them.

Moya, who was sprung from prison in 2007, said she picked Cunningham out of a lineup after he tried the stunt at her new pleasure palace about three weeks ago.

“He tells [a hooker], ‘You are under arrest for prostitution!’ and he clipped on handcuffs. Then he comes out and says, ‘Everybody sit down. You’re all under arrest,'” Moya said.

“He did it just like cops do it.”

It was another call girl who first led cops to Cunningham.

When he showed up at the woman’s posh upper East Side digs, he flashed his fake identification and demanded cash “or else she’ll be in trouble.”

Cunningham then stole $4,000 and sodomized the woman, a law enforcement source said.

Police tracked Cunningham through the cell phone number he used to book his “date,” sources said. He even answered that phone with a brisk “Officer Woods!” sources said. Out on $25,000 bail, he declined comment.

Moya said Cunningham had a badge and cuffs and even barked into a device, “I need backup!”…………………READ FULL STORY http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2008/07/10/2008-07-10_madam_with_heart_helps_cops_catch_phony_.html

A lawyer who fervently contested the result of the 2000 presidential election and started an organization advocating voter reform used it to hide profits from another venture, the police say: a strip club that offered more than dancing.

The lawyer, Louis Posner, ran the Hot Lap Dance Club out of a fifth-floor loft in Hell’s Kitchen, where the police said the wealthy clientele paid as much as $5,000 for sex with dancers in private rooms.

The authorities raided the loft on Thursday night and arrested Mr. Posner, his wife, Betty, and 19 others on charges that included money laundering and promoting prostitution. No clients were arrested.

According to the police, Mr. Posner, a 52-year-old tax lawyer, funneled the club’s money to an account for Voter March, the grass-roots demonstration organization he started shortly after the 2000 election that has been largely inactive since 2004. He deposited money into several other accounts, the police said, adding that the amounts were low enough to avoid raising a red flag at the IRS.

Investigators seized $570,000 from 13 bank accounts and two safety deposit boxes held by the Posners, all of which could be traced back to the dance club, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney’s office said…….On its Web site, the Hot Lap Dance Club, also known as Premium Events, bills itself as the city’s premier private lap dance club, with nightly erotic shows featuring lesbian dancers and sex toys……………

A detective came across an advertisement on CRAIGSLIST for a lap dance club and, after responding to it, he received a link to the club’s Web site, according to the criminal complaint.

During an undercover detective’s visit to the club last August, a dancer told him that there was a “house dealer of cocaine,” who “made rounds at midnight,” the complaint said. One of the employees introduced the detective to a man who went by the name Lou, who told him he “was the boss,” according to the complaint. Some of the women called him “Daddy,” the complaint said.

On one occasion, Lou told the detective he had a source on the Police Department’s payroll and would be able to detect an officer, the complaint said.

When a detective visited the club in June, Ms. Malandri offered to meet with him at a different location with another dancer to have a threesome for $5,000, the complaint said.

The business earned $1 million over 10 months, the police said.

Stephen Chang, a securities trader, said in court papers filed Friday that he was at the Hot Lap Dance Club near Madison Square Garden and was getting a paid lap dance when the accident occurred early Nov. 2, 2007.

According to the lawsuit, as the dancer swung around, the heel of her shoe hit him in the eye, causing him “serious injuries.”

A man who identified himself as the manager of the Hot Lap Dance Club said he was unaware of the accident or the state Supreme Court lawsuit. The club’s lawyer, Stephen Ateshoglou, did not immediately return a call.

On its Web site, the club describes itself as the “Playboy Mansion of Manhattan party lofts.” The site says admission is $50 plus a one-time club membership fee of $10 for newcomers. Lap dances cost around $40, plus admission, according to the Web site….READ FULL STORY…………..

A Brooklyn gang used a scam on craigslist.com to shake down New Yorkers with the lure of discounted iPhones, police said yesterday.

FLORIDA’s self-defense law covers gunning down an angry, armed pimp.

Orange County sheriff’s investigators reached that conclusion Wednesday, a day after an Orlando man killed the manager of a female escort he hired online through the Craigslist networking site.

‘From our perspective, he was clearly defending his life, and we’re not going to be making an arrest,’ sheriff’s homicide Sgt. Allen Lee said. ‘Any time we get a death like this, we do send it to the State Attorney’s Office for review.’

The deadly encounter began Tuesday afternoon on the shores of Lake Irma in east Orange County.

Two roommates, Shawn McGarity and Troy Manning, hired two women from separate Internet ads on Craigslist’s pages for erotic personal services in Orlando, according to investigators.

Unfortunately for the men, according to the Sheriff’s Office, the prostitution trade is in upheaval, split between women and men simply selling their bodies and predators who use sex to lure customers into violent rip-offs.

The first woman to arrive at the lakeside house on TCU Boulevard later told detectives that robberies of johns are making it harder for her to make a living. As the afternoon progressed, the woman who previously worked as a prostitute in San Francisco and New Orleans warned her clients that the other woman they hired might be getting ready to rob them, deputies said.

‘That’s unusual what she did. We’re trying to reach out to her,’ said Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation Cmdr. Paul Zambouros, head of the vice and organized-crime squads. ‘Granted, what she’s doing is not right, but she says she can’t get any jobs because the johns are afraid of getting ripped off.’

As of Wednesday afternoon, Craigslist had more than 100 new posts and photos from Orlando women and men offering sex for prices starting at about $150 for the first half-hour. At the same time, information about the dangers of getting robbed by Orlando’s pimps and prostitutes can be found at various Internet escort Web sites.

‘We didn’t realize it was such a problem. It was eye-opening and concerning, what we learned last night,’ Lee said of questioning the woman about the number of unreported robberies. ‘What’s a john going to do? Call home and say, ‘Honey, I just got robbed by a whore?’

The gunfire erupted shortly after 7 p.m.

Shawn Goubitz-Doss, identified by deputies as the pimp of the woman who was acting suspiciously, returned to the house and pistol-whipped McGarity, 31, almost as soon as he stepped through the door. He fired at least one shot indoors as three accomplices ran toward the house from the street, according to interviews.

Previously alerted by the other woman, McGarity had armed himself with a 9 mm Ruger pistol and shot Goubitz-Doss several times. Goubitz-Doss died later at Winter Park Hospital, according to sheriff’s reports.

‘As far as who shot first, we still don’t know,’ Lee said.

Jail and police records show Goubitz-Doss, 28, had been arrested before on charges of beating a pregnant woman, armed robbery, burglary, violation of probation and stealing a firearm.

The state’s self-defense law passed in October 2005 gives everyone the right to use deadly force to protect their homes and lives without having to retreat if they feel threatened.

Investigators are searching for Goubitz-Doss’ three accomplices, who fled before deputies reached the home. The names of the two women were not released as they are part of the continuing investigation, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

McGarity and Manning, 35, likely will not be charged with soliciting a prostitute.

‘We’re not going to look into that,’ Lee said. ‘We’re just doing the death investigation, but we referred that to MBI.’

The county’s vice cops are interested most in having Craigslist pull the sexually explicit photographs and offers of prostitution from its Orlando classified advertising. In a Sept. 28 letter, Zambouros advised Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster that MBI has arrested more than 100 prostitutes advertising their services on Craigslist.

Craigslist did not respond to a request from the Orlando Sentinel for comment by late Wednesday evening.

‘Everybody thinks prostitution is a victimless crime, but last night shows what can happen when you invite someone into your house or hotel room,’ he said. ‘Craigslist hasn’t gotten back to me.’………………………..READ FULL STORY http://www.orlandosentinel.com/orl-hookers1807oct18,0,2736084.story
