Fined for theft in Monaco from prostitute

Fined for theft in Monaco from prostitute

By Staff Writer - January 15, 2017

banknoteA resident of Roquebrune has been found guilty in Monaco of stealing $1,430 from a prostitute. The offence came to light on May 10, 2015, when the victim initially accused the culprit of raping her in the room of an upmarket hotel.

The defendant told the Monaco Criminal Court that after an evening spent carousing he had not taken the young woman to be a professional, especially since she was so smartly dressed, and he had not expected to be asked to pay her bill of €300. But he admitted stealing €800 in cash while the woman was in the bathroom, regretting he had acted as a “kid” in doing so.

The defendant was arrested on the day following the theft, and had on him the sum of €1,430 – the proceeds of two previous transactions by the prostitute, less the cost of his lunch with a friend. The tribunal president told the culprit that he could not expect to have his cake and eat it too. The court followed the recommendations of the prosecuting counsel and fined him €1,500.
