  • Stanford Law School grad advertise herself on the Internet as a high-priced escort

    A Stanford Law School graduate was sentenced Monday on a federal tax conviction related to running a high-priced call girl service, punishment that includes restrictions on her ability to keep advertising as an escort while she's on probation.

    During a hearing in San Jose federal court, U.S. District Judge James Ware concluded he needed to impose those restrictions on Cristina Warthen after federal prosecutors disclosed she's continued to advertise herself on the Internet as a high-priced escort, even as she awaited sentencing on federal tax evasion charges related to her days as an upscale prostitute named "Brazil."

    Warthen gained notoriety when she was busted as a jet-setting call girl who sold her services to pay off her Stanford Law School debts. She got her law degree from Stanford in May 2001, but quickly began to run a steamy Web site with offers to jet off for liaisons with clients in cities around the country, including New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

    She eventually pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes on more than $133,000 she earned as a prostitute in 2003.

    UPDATE

    A Stanford Law School graduate formerly married to the co-founder of Ask.com was sentenced Monday to home detention for tax evasion after being accused of running an escort service to help pay her bills and student loans.

    Cristina Warthen, 36, maintained a Web site called Touchofbrazil.net, on which she advertised her services as "Brazil" and posted erotic pictures of herself, federal prosecutors said.

    At a hearing Monday in U.S. District Court in San Jose, Judge James Ware ordered Warthen to serve a year in home detention with electronic monitoring. She is to pay the government $243,000 in back taxes, fines and restitution.
