WASHINGTON – The woman accused of running a high-end prostitution ring in the nation's capital heads back to court Monday.
Deborah Jeane Palfrey defends her business as a legal escort service but some worry that her phone records will be released and expose high-profile Washington officials.
A federal judge ordered Palfrey to stop releasing her phone records earlier this month. Palfrey said if her clients can be tracked down through her phone records that they will testify that they didn't have sex with the women who worked for her.
Government prosecutors say Palfrey's company, Pamela Martin and Associates, was a prostitution ring that operated in the Washington area for 13 years. Palfrey denies that, and claims her business was completely legitimate.
