A Philadelphia woman arrested this week for allegedly offering sex for World Series tickets in an online ad got what she craved Wednesday.
A local radio station gave Susan Finkelstein, 43, and her husband tickets to Game 3 of the World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees, DJ Chio from Wired 96.5 confirmed to MyFoxPhilly.com.
Meanwhile, her attorney says his client's arrest and prostitution charge for the alleged Craigslist sex ad has all been a big misunderstanding between her and police in Bensalem, Pa.
"Her and her husband were looking for a chance to go to the World Series and she wound up in handcuffs," lawyer Bill Brennan said. "You have a die-hard Phillies fan that uses a colloquial phrase and says 'I'll do anything for tickets!' and she's arrested. It's beyond the pale."
She was charged with prostitution and related offenses Tuesday after police say she advertised herself as a buxom, blond, die-hard Phillies fan who was desperate for tickets and would perform sex acts to get them.
"I'm the creative type! Maybe we can help each other," authorities say Finkelstein's online ad read. She described herself as "gorgeous" and said her price was negotiable, according to police.
Finkelstein was busted when, authorities say, an undercover officer responded to the Craigslist posting. She allegedly offered to perform graphic sex acts on the officer in exchange for World Series seats.
