[sorry about quoting this misogynist rag, but it is the only source I could find]
An auburn-haired beauty who once touted herself as the city's priciest call girl sobbed in court yesterday as she learned she'll have to wait another day to learn whether she'll be sprung on bail.
Natalie McLennan, 25, has been behind bars for the past three weeks since she pleaded not guilty to money laundering and promoting prostitution. Prosecutors said McLennan had a "managerial" position at NY Confidential, an escort enterprise.
Yesterday, McLennan appeared in court with her new lawyer, John Iannuzzi, with the hope of posting $50,000 bail. But the matter was postponed until today to give Iannuzzi more time to review the bail package.
When Iannuzzi whispered news of the delay to his client, McLennan's slender torso shook with quiet sobs. The Montreal native who commanded $2,000 an hour was led from court in handcuffs, weeping softly and sniffling loudly.
The case has received considerably more symapthy in the Montreal press. Apparently her lawyer is arguing that she was duped and used. Personally, I think prostitution should be legal, and fear that she may face tough sentencing in the USA, including imprisonment on the infamous Reiker's Island. I was wondering what feminists think of this case, and if there are any support mechanisms or lobbying that could help Nat. Thank you.
