    List of alleded johns to be published in Maine

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/49358745

    Following a bust, a list of more than 100 alleged johns is to be published.

    What would you do if a SP's client list was to be published and you were pretty sure you are on it...?

    Fake name and disposable cell phone+number. Wouldn't make a difference to me.

    I know an attorney who practices in Portland and I will be interested to see if he makes the list (apparently attorneys will be on it). He is a fucking pit bull. This is a case of "don't shit where you eat."

    I really find it hard to believe that the cops would release a list of clients in a case in which the defendants are being charged with invasion of the privacy of those same clients. Does that not seem a tad bizarre?

    I would plead a serious medical case of "boner erectius" much like the poor individuals that use medical marijuana to get over their "anxiety"

    Works in a large city. Not so easy in a small town where some people are easily recognized...

    It seems to be a new trend in the US: "shaming the johns". Many jurisdictions are using it now or are considering it apparently.
    I read somewhere that in some places they publish names and photos...

    This case is different. First thing is it does not involve crack whores on the street and their clients. Second the defendants are charged with invading the privacy of the clients whose names the cops are going to publish. That does not sound like any of the past cases in which clients' names were published. Third, it does not sound like these clients are charged with anything and this may all be a smokescreen to scare them into cooperating with the prosecution. It happens all the time, and the media can be an effective tool to blow smoke up someone's ass.

    The busts occurred because of highly indiscreet behavior from what I read in the article. I can give you a long history but the short history in Connecticut is that operations that got busted were operated in an indiscreet manner while those who were not busted figured things out. There is a long running (about 20 years) Asian MP in Bridgeport that the cops have never touched while busting many other MPs in the city. Reason why is the MP that has never been busted donates to local police charities and makes those donations known to the police. In short, they are smart and the ones who got busted are stupid.

    This case is just like the Arizona situation. It is not the cops that are hassling the johns, it is the fucking media.

    The prosecution and the defense asked that the client list be sealed. The media filed an objection based on the public's right to know. Why don't they just be honest and say. Your honor, our newspaper demands access to the information so we can sensationalize the matter and sell more papers and more advertising. Incredibly, the judge granted access to the media despite both the prosecution and defense requesting otherwise.

    Hopefully, the defendants did in fact load up the client list with policement and public figures, some of whom did and some of whom did not use her services. That has always been the prosecutions rationale for requesting that the list be sealed - there is no crime merely as a result of someone being on the list and, in fact, many of the names are placed there as a red herring. She should have listed every fucking reporter of the local newspaper on her client list.

    The difference from "regular" escort service busts in this case is her habit of secretly videotaping the sessions for unknown reasons, since that can prove that the guy on the list actually had sex with someone presumably in exchange for money. Hopefully, the videos will not be allowed to be used as evidence against the johns since they did not consent to being taped. I have no idea what Maine law says on this subject. But how the hell can they prosecute her for unlawfully videotaping the sessions and then use those illegal tapes to go after the victims of the taping? Does that make any sense? They are probably just trying to scare guys into testifying against her.

    All that having been said, I read that she was into some bizarre stuff, like fucking her pit bull on tape. Add that to the fact that she did her business in a very small town that disapproves of prostitution and this bust was just a matter of time. Fortunately, it is such a bizarre scenario that it does not have a lot of relevance to "regular" hobbying in the states.

    So why are you presently hiding behind a fake handle?

    Don't hobby in the US, except for occassional/ rare visits to legal brothels in Nevada. Instead, save hobbying for Montreal and other "friendly" cities...

    I very much respect clients' need to keep certain spheres of their lives separate. I appreciate how fear of exposure is on the minds of many of the men who see escorts. But when stories about client lists being shared come up in the news I know this will make screening tough for a bit. It is one reason I am fine with an alias and a disposable cell if you have recent references from other reputable providers.

    I am also glad I am in Canada and not the USA where they are aiming to expose ladies and clients so they can beef up their anti-crime reputations in a salacious way. I can work here in relative peace and safety.

    ....and so much for privacy, liberty and freedom in the USA. Being atheist I still don't understand WHY I can't buy alcohol on Sunday or legally order up some hot little spinner in 30 minutes or less. Mi amor Montreal!

    I also would not mind if my family learned about my dark secret. We use anonymus handles mostly to protect our privacy from all the other weirdos on merb. Even on forum about Winnie the Pooh people use handles.
