Navy officer tells of life as an escort

Baltimore Sun:

A Navy officer could face punishment — including a discharge — after testifying Thursday that while stationed at the Naval Academy in Annapolis she moonlighted for the alleged prostitution ring run by the so-called “D.C. Madam.”

Lt. Cmdr. Rebecca C. Dickinson managed the Naval Academy’s food services between September 2004 and May 2007, Navy officials said. She also taught a course on leadership for the leadership, ethics and law department.

She acknowledged on the witness stand Thursday in U.S. District Court in Washington that she also worked as an escort for a service run by Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called D.C. Madam.

Dickinson, 38, a Tennessee native who was known to her clients as “Renee,” said she worked for the business for about six months starting in October 2005.

  1. […] reported in the Baltimore Sun, found via sex work blog Bound, Not Gagged, the 38-year-old Dickinson testified against Palfrey under a grant of immunity, which means that […]

  2. As a former Marine I can tell you that this will, in fact, end her career. Clearly she is intelligent. Lt. Cmdr is a respectable rank and she clearly had leadership and and initiative.

    It saddens me this country will loose a good officer ‘in the name of decency’. It is my hope that her military career and subsequent private sector career is not ruined by this.

  3. Have you see this yet? The prosecutor in the Palfrey, Catherine Connelly, is outing and brutalizing not just Dickinson, but over 100 women. The questioning she’s giving to some of these women is outrageous! Connelly sounds like another Judge Deni.

    H/t to Feministe for this one.
