WICHITA, Kan. — A federal indictment alleges a Wichita woman ran a prostitution business with as many as 20 escorts.
Sandra J. Lacy, 60, of Wichita is charged with 27 counts of racketeering in promotion of prostitution through her escort service, Jessie's Primetime Entertainment at 304 S. Laura.
The business was licensed by the City of Wichita as an escort service. Lacy is alleged to have required escorts to carry condoms and to engage in sexual acts if a customer requested. The indictment also says she distributed coupons that escorts could give to loyal customers.
She accepted payments for escorts' services by cash and credit card, charging customers $160 for half an hour or $185 for an hour with an escort. Credit card deposits to her Prime Time account totaled $39,189 in 2009, $25,601 in 2010, $40,851 in 2011 and $32,770 from January to August 2012.
The case was investigated by the Wichita Police Department and the FBI. If convicted, Lacy faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each count.
