A former New York madam says her client list included Wall Street lawyers and other high-profile people, but the Manhattan District Attorney’s office wasn’t interested in prosecuting her customers.
Kristin Davis pleaded guilty last year to charges of promoting prostitution, ABC News reports. She was sentenced to three months of time served and forfeited about $500,000 in profits, the story says. She estimates her escort business had grossed $200,000 a week.
Davis disclosed her client list to 20/20, which is airing a story this evening.
The list included lawyers, investment bankers, and media and corporate executives, the story says. One name on the list, according to the story, is a partner at Cravath Swaine & Moore "looking for a party girl to come fully equipped." He reportedly spent $20,000.
Davis told the network that some clients—she didn't say which ones—were invoiced on corporate credit cards. She said she disguised the charges as costs for computer consulting, construction expenses and other legitimate services.
