Does anyone have an update on Michigan 2L?

Michigan 2L

I posted this at Christmas, and it probably didn’t get a lot of views because of the holidays, but I feel this is extremely improtant to follow up on. Does anyone know anything else about this case?

She is a law student at UM, Ann Arbor, and she posted an ad on craigslist. The ad was answered by one of her professors, making for an awkward moment for both. They both decided to go through with the appt, and he wanted to experiment with spanking. He ended up beating the shit out of her, and she was able to get away. She went to the cops to report assault (she was bruised and couldn’t see out of one eye), and the cops told her that they could arrest both of them for prostitution or she could just go away and forget it.

  1. I can’t believe I missed this post! I haven’t heard anything about this ever. I will ask around.

    I’ve sent a message to the group admin to request update.

  3. I don’t remember hearing about this either. is there anything we can do to support this woman? What is the status of her case?

  4. I know of another sex worker who described receiving a similiar reaction from the police. Somebody attacked her on the streets and when the police arrived, they told her that they could arrest both of them (her for prostitution and him for assault) or they could just leave. Thus, she decided not to file charges so she wouldn’t be arrested herself and get stuck with prostitution on her permenant record. One of the cops suggested that she get a pimp to protect her.

  5. We should collect these stories. I know Norma Jean Almodovar methodically collected these stories for years. I should ask her if she still does.
