Escort sentenced for tax avoidance

September 29, 2009|Associated Press

A Stanford law school graduate will 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.

Warthen pleaded guilty in January to failing to pay taxes on nearly $82,000 earned in 2003 as an escort in cities around the country.
