Guildford Case

11 posts in this topic

I seem to recall an impending prosecution, for a local parlour, I think in the Guildford area.

This was discussed in this forum and good wishes were sent to the ladies.

Does any one know if it ever came to court and was the presecution successful. Hopefully not.

That is rather unfortunate, I remember her when I first joined PNet and she came across as very cordial :(

As in 'got done', i assume you mean she went to prison? How long did she get? I dont know anything about this particular case, but i do know that people who get done for running parlours invariably get sent down. Always makes me wonder how some places have been open for years!!!

No, she didn't go to prison. As I recall it was a suspended sentence plus POCA order.

I don't think that people convicted of brothel-keeping invariably get sent down. Custodial sentences are the norm, but suspended sentences are extremely common especially if the defendant pleads guilty and there's no evidence of exploitation.

They have basically ruined her life, no chance of getting a decent job and POCA will basically take everything she has, as i assume most of her income was related to the brothel.

Poor girl.

The police were called because a working lady was assaulted at Cloud 9 parlour in Guilford, instead of the police trying to catch the guy, they decided to arrest the owner and receptionist, and made an issue of trying to clean up the area, the place was closed down, and the guy who commited the assault was never brought to justice.

The judge in her summing up said is SashB didnt phone the police to reoport the assault, she would not have been arrested for running a parlour.

Whatever SashaB is doing now, i hope she is feeling good with herself for doing the right thing, as it takes guts to make a stand as she did.

Criminal law not my area of expertise, but I seem to recall there is an old statute that prevents Police acting in this manner, unless that law was repealed and changed in last 8 years!! It sounds as if her lawyers were not that good, the largest firms whho instruct the top barristers would have put alot of pressure on CPS not to even bring the case.

The law notwithstanding, it is this kind of Police behaviour that makes the public distrust them, and i find it ironic the Police aalways moan when people will not come forward as witnesses. What is the point when they cant be trusted.

I wonder why SashB is no longer on here? No doubt Police were monitoring this site (they still do i'm sure), it would haave been a good way for her to stick two fingers up at them!

Whoever she was, she sounds a diamond, and i hope all goes well for her in the future

Sasha is still a member and still logs on and posts..

She had an excellent legal team and she has consistently sung their praise. I've no idea to what old statute you are referring. There was a separate initial hearing before the judge in relation to an abuse of process claim. That failed. I imagine that her main concern then was to avoid an immediate custodial sentence, not least because she has young children. It's no surprise therefore that she pleaded guilty. It's what I would have done.

Thank you everybody for theinformation and particulalrly to Silverado for the link.

The very sad morale from this episode is girls, don't call the police if you are being molested, you might find yourself in court and facing a serious conviction.

What a reflection of our prudish and pruriant society!

I don't think this is the case; unfortunately in Guildford there was elements of opportunism by the police when they visited the parlour. In another recent case a man was sent down for a substantial period after a masked robbery at an escort's house; similarly in Brighton police arrested and charged two suspects after an armed robbery at a well-known massage parlour. It must be remembered that the murder of prostitutes (the vast majority street girls) make up the biggest unsolved list of homicides in the UK. Many girls speak highly of the assistance they have received from the police.
