Today,the Honourable is in the line of fire. She is being dragged,bashed and pummelled on Facebook. People even dug up the report of her 2001 arrest in the USA.
Please read on. The write up is from the New York Times.
An Upper East Side woman who was accused of running a $4,000-an-hour prostitution service that promoted itself on the Internet pleaded guilty yesterday to attempted money laundering in a deal that allows her to be released from jail immediately.
Although she pleaded guilty only to a money-laundering charge, the woman, Maria Uzo Egwu, 30, said that her escort service, Glamour Roses, had been a prostitution business.
Justice Carol Berkman of State Supreme Court in Manhattan sentenced Ms. Egwu, who had no prior arrests, to time served, which was just under five months. Ms. Egwu, who was indicted on charges of promoting prostitution and money laundering, would have faced up to 15 years in prison if she had been convicted at trial.
Ms. Egwu had been jailed in $250,000 bail since her arrest in February. The judge refused to lower her bail after prosecutors said she was a Nigerian citizen who had hidden assets in her home country.
When Ms. Egwu was arrested, the police seized $212,000 in cash from her apartment on Third Avenue at East 84th Street, $417,000 from bank and investment accounts and a $68,000 Cadillac limousine with the license plate ''Decadent.'
