    More BDN “Scarlet Letter” journalism. Give it a break!!! This is not news!

      Yes, it is news.

    They should put age and addresses because of others with the same name..It is only fair. These men caused their own trouble.

    • Bill Cat

      Ages and hometowns are listed there, dear. All that other stuff seems like public shaming and morbid fascination…

        Someone (men) decided that sex sells…and it does. It sells perfume and jewels and even shampoo! Hence the so called morbid fasination. If no one was interested, it would have been a back page news item.

          Billswifey, I’d seriously question whether ‘men’ originally decided that sex sells — seeing they’re the buyers far more often then the sellers in situations like this at least. But lets not confuse a prostitution case for the ad industry.. LOL

          And, seriously, who ELSE should pose for women’s cosmetics and perfumes — auto mechanics, loggers and coal miners? Fella with a big beard, plaid shirt, suspenders and work boots going-on about Chanel #5? Guy with greasy coveralls and a socket wrench in one hand holding a bottle of Suave Shampoo in the other, saying how it ‘adds body and shine’ to the motor oil and axle grease in his hair?
          C’mon, will ya? =)

            Who else should do an ad for men’s shaving cream and razor blades and fast cars!! hahahaahahahaha…women!… because sex sells! But I get your point. It may not have been men that decided sex sells. Women are so darned competitive!!!

    WHY the three different fines …..???………………….. Oh ya, the State wants to recoup the wasted time used on these desperadoes……………. plus the DA’s Christmas party is coming up.

    • Anonymous

      I wonder if it may have to do with how many “counts” against them. Maybe the lesser fined people didn’t frequent her as often. Just a thought….

      • Bill Cat

        If that the case, then that fella with the Viagra will have to mortgage his house to pay the his fines. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

        So in other words, MAINE , keep your noses out of her private affairs.

      So if a person out right admits their guilty they are fined more than the person who pleads no contest which is interpretted as guilty but not willfully admitted, and the person that plead not guilty pays $400.00 less than the other two after he decided after the fact to just admit guilt. What message does this send about our court system?

  • Anonymous

    Maybe some guys had to pay a higher fine because they had better sex.

    • Bill Cat

      Do a survey on that and get back to us, will ya? LOL

    Geez, you’d think the fines would be reduced based on the money prepaid for the “Zumba classes”…

    “Another man plead no contest-which triggers a guilty verdict in court”….
    Incorrect. A plea of Nolle Contendre equates to just that. The defendant, by pleading no contest states before the court that he is not contesting the charge. Therefore, the defendant is not pleading guilty or not guilty.
    And if by pleading no contest “triggers a guilty verdict” then Maine is probably the only state in which that occurrs….and that would not surprise me in the least.

      You should go back to law school, because I think you were out sick that day.

    I feel for the kids. They’ll undoubtedly take some crap at school. Bullying any way you look at it. I dealt with it with my fists daily. Kids today should not have to endure bullying.

    Bet ya it cost a lot less to get sca-rewed the first time.

      Good question – do we know what she charged? I’d think it was in the $300 range.

  • Anonymous

    Fines based upon the violators geographical location of residency and availibility of partner?

    I’m surprised Judge mills did not put the guy who lied and then came back in and pleaded guilty in jail. The worse thing that will come out of this for the Johns is their relationships with their wives if they are married.

    • Anonymous

      Who lied?

      Pleading not guilty isn’t lying, if that’s what you mean. It is your right to require the prosecution to prove their case.

  • So, the state made more money than she did. Justice is served?

    I feel sorry for the families. They are the victims in all this. An affair might take time to repair, but a hooker, please, his butt would be out the door!!!!

    • Anonymous

      Really you could forgive an affair but not a hooker? Personally I look at that as an affair is something that’s typically ongoing and emotions get involved, now a hooker on the other hand, is just straight up sex, nothing more, nothing less. Not saying that a married man doing either is right by any means.

      • Betsy Brooks

        Not really saying I could forgive, but a hooker? Please, gross!!

  • Bertha Gruntz

    3 guilty. 1 $700 fine, 1 $1000 fine and 1 $600 fine. All charged with the same crime, engaging a prostitute. What caused the fines to be different, the number of “infractions”, the sex acts performed or the ability to pay? Seems like a lot of time and effort went into this. I guess the drug problem up there is under control then?
