Shout out of support for Victoria Thorne in UK!

Latest adult woman persecuted by zealous prohibitionist police. She’s going to jail for 15 months!

Some choice quotes:

“It is plain that those who thought they knew you, and knew you well, are at a loss as to how you came to be involved in such a seedy world.” ~the judge who sentenced her

“In this case Vicky Thorne showed complete disregard for both the law and our own high standards and paid the price through the loss of her career and freedom.” ~ Det. Insp. Andy Jones

Policewoman turned escort jailed in UK

  1. …I still don’t understand under what law this woman was jailed? Selling sex in the UK is legal isn’t it? It’s only gaining from the proceeds that’s illegal I thought? What law did they use to get her?

  2. It looks like she was charged with ‘misconduct in public office’. She wouldn’t have been arrested if she hadn’t been a police officer as well as a sex worker.

  3. Street prostitution is illegal in the U.K. and so are brothels, which are defined as establishments where there is more than one prostitute working at a time. Thus, if two sex workers were working together out of the same flat, that would constitute a brothel. Prostitution is only legal in the U.K. when the sex worker works indoors alone.

  4. But how can she be charged with misconduct in public office if what she was doing wasn’t illegal? What other jobs could she have moonlighted for and also gotten thrown in Jail? If there aren’t any, then that’s discrimination…
