Susan Finkelstein faces a preliminary hearing in Bucks County on Dec. 3. On the bright side, she's been offered a pair of tickets to a weekend game in Philadelphia, courtesy of a radio station and car dealer.
The 43-year-old University of Pennsylvania graduate student wanted to take her husband to a game between her beloved Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees. The self-described "buxom blonde" said she was simply trying to score tickets online, as she had in the past.
But this time her Craig's List ad was answered by an undercover cop and she was busted for solicitation of prostitution.
"It definitely wasn't worth all this ... turmoil and anxiety," she told the AP with her lawyer and her husband, 56-year-old John LaVoy, on the line. "Hopefully, the silver lining is I do get to see the game." Her husband appeared less enthusiastic.
She is not worried about the notoriety that might follow her to the stadium in the wake of national news coverage of her arrest.
"I think most people will be focused on the game," Finkelstein said. Her husband wasn't so sure.
