Questionable post-law school decisions, Part 1: A Stanford law graduate has been sentenced to one year of home detention and ordered to pay $243,000 for failing to pay taxes on money earned running an escort service. Cristina Warthen allegedly claimed online that she paid off some $300,000 in student debt by her offering herself for “companionship.”
Stupid post-law school decisions, Part II: The sentencing judge also imposed an order barring Warthen from continuing to advertise her escort services while on home detention because she continued to advertise her “escort services” on the Internet while awaiting sentencing.
The aim of law is the maximum gratification of the nervous system of man.
Judge Learned Hand, quoted in Time, May 5, 1958
