Philadelphia woman convicted of offering sex for World Series tickets gets 1 year of probation

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia woman convicted of attempted prostitution for offering to trade sex for World Series tickets has been sentenced to one year of probation.

Susan Finkelstein was also sentenced Thursday in Bucks County Court to 100 hours of community service.

The 44-year-old had been convicted in March. She had placed a racy online ad seeking tickets to a Phillies-Yankees game in October.

Bensalem police set up a sting and say she offered sex for tickets.

Judge Albert Cepparulo called Finkelstein's crime "incredibly stupid," saying that her ad could have left her vulnerable to a predator.

He suggested that she fulfill her community service by speaking to groups of women about the dangers of the Internet.
