Navy Officer Describes Paid Sex While Working for D.C. Madam
FoxNews.com ^ | April 11, 2007 | Associated Press

Posted on 04/11/2008 7:27:28 AM PDT by Perseverando

WASHINGTON — A Navy officer has described for a Washington jury how she worked as a call girl while also serving as a supply officer at the Naval Academy.

Lt. Cmdr. Rebecca Dickinson testified Thursday that she had sex for money while working for Deborah Palfrey's escort service, according to The Washington Post.

She testified she quit in April 2006 because she didn't like the work and because she had other commitments.

Palfrey has said she was unaware that the escorts were having sex for money. She says the business was an erotic fantasy service.

Testimony resumes Monday.

A Lieutenant Commander hooking? That's the rank equivalent of an Army Major, yes?

Sort of bringing home the work from the office, no?

Yes, it is, and apparently a “major” mistake on her part.

Just bizarre. I can see a scenario in which an attractive 22 year old ensign fresh out of OTC might have been assigned to the DC area in a logistics role and have gotten in way over her head, cost of living wise, in the pricey DC area.

But this woman was in her 30s in a position of some responsibility with presumably at least 10 years' service under her belt.

So the pimp or madame that hooks her up takes a cut of that . . . and say it takes her 1000 clients before she picks up a dread disease. She’ll have $120,000 and be headed towards death with Hep C or AIDS, or be headed to many itchy or difficult evenings with lesser problems. Smart lady. /sarc

Do the services check for drugs? A pricey addiction would be my bet not knowing anyting about the story.

To be fair, the woman in the picture - if she originally had a good figure - would look very presentable if she lost about 40 pounds and was tastefully made up.

And she was charging almost 90% less than Spitzer's prostitute.

I wonder if she was one of Vitter's women.

Don’t know her history at all.
Maybe at age 35 she was feeling like an old maid, and figured this was a way to meet some medium/high roller Washingtonians and maybe hook up long term.
My guess is on her “service calls” she looked a bit better than these pics.

According to one artilce I read, she has 19 years of service. I'm sure this includes her enlisted time.

At a pay grade of O-4? I would guess not - but who knows.

Your thesis would explain a lot.

That much money buys

That doesn't involve
a pimp or breaking the law . . .

And she was hooking two years ago, so she presumably had 17 years of service at that time - making her 34 at the absolute youngest when she stopped hooking, but likely close to 40.

Navy Times confirms she is 38 years of age now, which means she was hooking when she was 35 and 36.

Not necessarily. If she was passed over for promotion to commander she could have 19 year in and be forced to retire at 20.

Thanks for clearing that up.

The navy Times indicates that she is a single mom of three who filed for personal bankruptcy shortly before she started hooking.

As an O-4 over 18 years her base pay is about $6500 a month. Add another $1500 or so for housing and subsistance and she's making $96,000 a year. They shouldn't need beans and rice.

I noticed in the Navy times article that she taught a Navy Leadership class for one semester at the Naval Academy sometime during 2004-2007. DUH???

Guess she was a practitioner of "Don't ask, don't tell."

Not at 96,000 a year they wouldn’t likely need beans and rice . . . but debt can chew you up regardless of income. My point was general, people that do illegal or immoral things “for the children” have lost their balance and often end up hurting the children as well as themselves.

So the money she earned doing this potentially cost her lifelong retirement benefits ONE YEAR before they came. Amazing . . .
