WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita woman has admitted running an escort service as a front for a prostitution operation.
The U.S. Attorney’s office said 60-year-old Saundra Lacy pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to engaging in interstate commerce in furtherance of prostitution. Both sides have agreed to recommend that Lacy be placed on two years of probation at her sentencing in December.
Lacy admitted that her escort service, Jessie’s Primetime Entertainment, was in fact a prostitution business that employed at least 20 women. Customers paid $160 for half-hour dates or $185 for one-hour dates with an escort. During dates, escorts engaged in sexual contact with the customers.
