Massachusetts Lawyer Robbed During Work As Escort

logoThe 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.

    JENNIFER: Les, I’m talking about the oldest profession.
    LES: Lorraine’s a farmer?”

  7. ‘Roxanne’ (1979)
    –The Police
    He doesn’t quite get around to putting the lotion in the basket, but his “mind is made up,” which creeps us out. He, too, is in a “bad way.” Can that be cured with a shot?

    ‘House of the Rising Sun’ (1964)
    –The Animals
    One of the most popular prostitution songs ever recorded, this folk ballad has unconfirmed origins, but pretty much anybody who owned a guitar in the ’60s recorded it. The Animals’ raspy, garage-rock version was the biggest hit.

    ‘Lady Marmalade’ (1975)
    –LaBelle
    Joe did want to give it a go and found himself wanting more, more, more. Patti LaBelle belted out the mother of all hooker songs with frank French panache and a bit of orgasmic gobbledygook. It’s a chart-topper that packs a caution, as Joe gets back to his regular life and can’t quite sleep right again. But he’s hardly a ruined stalker sad-sack like most of the other johns on this list. Marmalade must spread sweetly.

    Thought this was appropriate for this Blawg. . . .

    This is not the only state that does this. I have heard that some don’t complain anymore because they just disappeared after signing the paperwork.

    Texas is not isolated on this.

  9. Read the more detailed local newspaper report for the more disturbing additional facts. The lawyer (escort/hooker), who also has an MBA degree, claimed her John robbed her. She threatened to lie that the crime never happened if the press reported it. The assistant attorney general also asked the newspaper not to report the lawyer/escort’s name. The lawyer, admitted in MA and pending admission in RI, had also lied on her bar application about the nature of her business.

  10. Maybe I should change professions. Nah a name change won’t do all that much. Now, I thought Politics was the Oldest profession, I guess I was wrong thar too.
