Prostitution by Stanford Law Graduate

A Standford University law school graduate will have to serve a year of home detention for failing to pay taxes on money she earned while working as a prostitute. Cristina Warthen was ordered by a federal judge Monday to wear an electronic monitoring device while serving her sentence.

As part of a new plea deal with prosecutors, she'll also have to pay the government about $243,000, instead of the $313,000 established in a previous plea arrangement.

Prosecutors agreed to the lower amount when Warthen demonstrated she could not pay the full amount after her divorce. Warthen pleaded guilty in January that she failed to pay taxes on nearly $82,000 earned in 2003 as an escort in cities around the country, including New York, Chicago and Washington D.C.  Source Associated Press.
