Legal Ramifications Surround Spitzer Prostitution Ring Allegations

Legal Ramifications Surround Spitzer Prostitution Ring Allegations

What: As reports emerge of Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s involvement in a high-class prostitution ring and calls for his resignation are heard throughout the New York political community, the possible repercussions of the allegations beyond resignation should be addressed.

In addition to turning over his responsibilities to Lt. Gov. David Patterson and the possible end of his political career, Spitzer could face some serious criminal charges. In New York, the offense of patronizing a prostitute is a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 3 months in jail or one-year probation or by a maximum fine of $300.

Who: Former New York State Assembly Minority Deputy Legislative Director Thomas J. Carr, Esq. is available for independent expert commentary, analysis, questions, or comments involving this situation. Carr also previously served as an Assistant D.A. in Brooklyn, NY. Members of the media may utilize Carr’s knowledge and experience involving criminal law and the New York political climate.

When: Carr is available via phone or in person at the firm’s Albany, New York office or in-studio at your convenience. Carr will be available as the story develops for ongoing commentary.
