ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Former University of New Mexico President F. Chris Garcia was arrested and jailed Thursday in connection with a multistate, online prostitution ring that authorities say was run by a physics professor from New Jersey.

Police said Garcia, 71, and Fairleigh Dickinson professor David Flory, 68, were among seven members identified in the top echelon of the ring. Six have been arrested, and warrants have been issued for one more, Albuquerque police Chief Ray Schultz said.

Investigators said the ring had some 1,400 members, including 200 prostitutes, but there was no indication that any other universities or students were involved.

"At this point it looks purely coincidental" that two of the top members were academics, police Lt. William Roseman said.

Schultz emphasized the investigation had just started and that human trafficking and racketeering charges were possible.

Consistent with our nonpartisan approach, Think New Mexico’s twelve-member Board is composed of Democrats, Independents and Republicans. They are statesmen and stateswomen, who have no agenda other than to see New Mexico succeed . They are also the brain trust of this think tank.

If I am not mistaken, Garcia was appointed by Bill Richardson and they were said to be "close".

Perhaps, now, we know why...

“Roseman says Flory told police he did not make money off of the website and saw it as a hobby.”

Think New Mexico

Thanks for that, I laughed so hard I hurt myself, so many bells rang as I read the names and bio's.

I finally checked the online store to see if I could get a whorehouse tee shirt or something.

I wonder if free prostitution services are considered “donations”?

Truth can be stranger than fiction. A prostitution ring led by an old physics professor?

Members of the site paid anywhere from $200 for a sex act to $1,000 for a full hour of time...

These retired professors must have really nice pensions
