    Only six hundred bucks?

    52, 54, and 57 years old. These ladies are a little long in the tooth, for happy endings. And I’ll bet that their previous arrest records for the same crime, are even longer. Where are the photographs of these prostitutes, like the girl in Dover had to suffer through last week, before she was aquitted by a jury?

  3. seriously? says:

    Guess old guys want a happy ending too. Judging by the age of the women though I’d have to surmise they worked harder than the normal working girl to get their johns to that happiness.

    Many a good tune has been played on an old fiddle.

  5. guest says:

    Must be a very dark room.

  6. Lalala says:

    I see photos Guest, you don’t? I never saw anything about her actual arrest though, back when it happened, or a mug shot.

  7. Mary Deeter says:

    Congrats to Dan Gaffney for alerting authorities to what might be both prostitution and human trafficing!

  8. Countryboy says:

    I guess they were giving a complete massage, so what’s wrong with that. I’m pretty sure they were not held against their will, if so wouldn’t they be holding some younger gals. Why don’t we worry about violent criminals for a change?

  9. lookout says:

    After seeing these photo’s, I hope they gave a discount.

  10. Richard says:

    people actually paid for these women? EWWWWWW !

  11. Infidel says:

    “Congrats to Dan Gaffney for alerting authorities to what might be both prostitution and human trafficing!”

    I guess I missed the part of the story where Gaffney saves the world from a gaggle of ancient hookers. Did Dan do the investigation, go in undercover as bait, get the ‘massage’, and then drop the dime? Or was it just his usual holier-than-thou humiliation of alleged petty criminals on the radio?

    I feel safer now that these hardened criminals are off the mean streets of Lewes and Rehoboth. Looks like Gaffney may be responsible for yet another happy ending.

  12. anon says:

    Since one of them had several hundred dollars in their purse, clearly several people had paid them for these services. Which means several local men enjoyed a happy ending or two. It is illegal, even if it is pretty harmless. Can’t say I blame people for trying to make money in a very tough economy. I can blame the men who utilized the services though because they should know better. Shows more about the man’s characters than the prostitute’s character.
