Attorney Reema N. Bajaj, 25, has been charged with three counts of prostitution and has admitted that she was a prostitute but gave up the occupation after graduating law school. She is not alone in allegedly the combination of two of the oldest professions.
Police insist that they have evidence to two acts of prostitution this year after discovering emails between Bajaj, a suspect in an unrelated case and a DeKalb man. They allege that Bajaj agreed to perform the acts for $100 – a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail. They pushed that charge up to a felony by charging that it occurred within 1,000 feet of a school.
While it is not uncommon to see judges (here and here and here), law professors, and lawyers charged with associations with prostitutes, we have seen a few less common cases of lawyers who allegedly worked as prostitutes or escorts.
