Philly Woman Looking for World Series Tickets Convicted for Attempted Prostitution

In the end, it was a good thing, "just one of those things that brings people closer together," Jack LaVoy said.

That's not the usual spin that a husband would put on his wife being convicted for "attempted prostitution" in an all-out effort to obtain Phillies' World Series tickets, but I guess we'll have to take his word for it.

Finkelstein

As previously discussed here, during the Fall Classic between the Yankees and Phillies last October, Susan Finkelstein was arrested for allegedly offering undercover police sex for tickets. Earlier this week, a jury of seven women and five men found her not guilty of prostitution, but guilty of attempted prostitution. She faces a maximum one-year sentence on the third-degree misdemeanor.

Her attorney called the conviction "a half a stair step above a traffic ticket" (and I guess a half a stair step below actual prostitution? One and a half stair steps?). He maintains that Finkelstein is "goofy. She's eccentric. She got nuts with an epidemic case of Phillies Fever. But she's not a prostitute."
