Woman Arrested After Offering Sex for World Series Tix
Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | 10/27/09

Posted on 10/27/2009 4:28:56 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Some fans will do anything to go to the World Series.

Bensalem police said they arrested a Philadelphia woman Tuesday after she offered to perform various sex acts to an undercover officer in exchange for tickets.

According to police, Susan Finkelstein, 43, posted an ad on Craigslist that read: "DESPERATE BLONDE NEEDS WS TIX (Philadelphia) "Diehard Phillies fan—gorgeous tall buxom blonde— in desperate need of two World Series Tickets. Price negotiable--- I'm the creative type! Maybe we can help each other!"

An undercover officer responded to the ad, police said, and arrested Finkelstein after she made her offer. Finkelstein, of the 900 block of St. Bernard’s Street, was charged with soliciting prostitution and related offenses. A court date has yet to be determined, police said.

I guess it’s a form of tit for tat.

What seats were those tats for?

Isn’t it great that Philly is so safe that they have cops to spare to go after private citizens for solicitation?

I don’t know...I honestly think that if it’s between two people WHO CARES. I think prostitution should be legalized anyway.

This is prostitution? Come on...

The next thing you know, it will be illegal to trade sex for dinner, a movie, and some conversation!

Wait a minute, I’ve been trading sex for dinner, a movie, and some conversation for years, *and* I’ve been picking up the tab.

Good thing I’m not a Philadelphia cop or you might be in trouble!

I agree. This is a complete waste of taxpayers money that would be better spent towards solving real crimes that actually have victims.....

I don't think they're so desperate for arrests that they're trolling through Craigslist ads.

That’s what I was thinking. If she had offered to sleep with someone if they took her to the game, would that be prostitution, or just a normal date night?
