Accused threatens extortion after bust

A woman indicted for running a prostitution ring in D.C. is threatening to revile the names of 10,000 buyers if her case is not dropped.


“I cannot emphasize to you the terrible and quite unnecessary ramifications this [civil and/or criminal] case will set off, if permitted to advance for both sides,” the Washington Times quoted the accused Deborah J. Palfrey as saying.


D.C. talk radio was all over the story this morning as WMAL’s host Chris Core opened his phone lines to ask if we should care who the buyers are.


Core was misguided in his comments that prostitution is “a victimless crime.” But he was amazed that the vast majority of callers said the public should not care who was buying sex.


According to the indictment, the ring involved 132 women – supposedly all at least 22 years of age. The age is suspect to SHI because we know that the average age of entry into prostitution is 12.
