Remember Susan Finkelstein? Of course you do. She was the woman from Bucks County, Pennsylvania who was busted trying to trade sex for 2009 World Series tickets. She was acquitted on prostitution charges in the spring of 2010 but was convicted of attempted prostitution.
But now her conviction has been overturned and her name has been cleared! Basically!
The state Superior Court ruled Tuesday that since Finkelstein was cleared of the more serious prostitution count, she could not be convicted of attempt because the proof required to sustain both charges was the same. Also, the court noted, Finkelstein was not engaged in “sexual activity as a business” and said the crime of prostitution was not intended to “criminalize private illicit sexual relations.”
Thank God for that. Because if it wasn’t for private illicit sexual relations, some of us would have no sexual relations at all.
