    Philadelphia - Jury returns split verdict in sex-for-tickets case

    Jury returns split verdict in sex-for-tickets case


    DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - March 25, 2010 (WPVI) -- A jury returned a split verdict Thursday in the case of a woman accused of offering sex for World Series tickets.

    Susan Finkelstein has been found not guilty of prostitution, but guilty of attempted prostitution.

    The jury returned with that verdict shortly before 6:00 p.m. after more than three hours of deliberations.

    Finkelstein took the stand in her own defense earlier Thursday. She appeared composed as she told the court "I am not a prostitute."

    A jury of seven women and five men heard the case in Doylestown.

    Finkeslstein was accused of offering an undercover police officer sexual favors in return for World Series tickets.

    The 44-year-old Philadelphian was arrested in October after posting an ad on Craigslist describing herself as a "buxom blonde in desperate need of two World Series tickets. Price negotiable. I'm the creative type."

    Talking about that ad on the stand Thursday, Finkelstein said she admitted she didn't use the best judgment and at the time she thought she was being "goofy."

    However, Finkelstein also said she felt she was "running out of options" to get tickets to see the Phillies play the Yankees in the World Series.

    Wow - what an insane waste of state resources.

    I can't quite believe they'd send an undercover police officer after this CL ad?!

    When I previously trolled CL personals - it's especially entertaining with that Firefox plug-in where you see all the pictures - I always found lots and lots of professional sounding ads. For cold hard cash, not "world" series tickets.
