    Octogenarian runs hooker ring

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...International/

    Lindenwold, N.J. — Police made a surprising discovery when they busted the alleged madam of a prostitution ring called “August Playmates”: The woman running the show was an 80-year-old grandmother.

    Authorities arrested Vera Tursi last month during a sting operation to crack down on prostitution rings posing as legal escort services. Police say Tursi ran the business from her two-bedroom apartment, taking $60 of every $160 she charged clients for one hour with a call girl.

    Law enforcement officials say Ms. Tursi admitted her role in the business, saying she took it over a few years ago from her daughter, who had died. Police say Ms. Tursi told them she needed money to subsidize her Social Security checks.

    Ms. Tursi has been charged with a a single count of promoting prostitution. If convicted, she faces up to five years in prison. But because of her age and lack of a criminal record, she's more likely to receive probation.
