The ABA Journal is reporting on a case of a lawyer, Nina C. Baccala, 36, who was robbed while moonlighting as an escort. The recent graduate of New England School of Law and Massachusetts lawyer has been waiting for the results of her Rhode Island bar examination. She fought off the attacker who has a criminal record.
William V. Lapierre was arrested after allegedly trying to rob and then attacked Baccala.
Baccala graduated cum laude and has an MBA from Bryant University. She is listed as the president of BCN Enterprises LLC, a “dating service” providing “assorted gifts, merchandise, personal services.” On her bar application, she listed her employment as “telephone sales,” which could raise some questions.
Assistant Attorney General Stacey Pires Veroni said that Baccala tried to recant her charges after media latched on to the story.
There is no allegation of prostitution in the case, which is better than a recent Stanford law student, here.
