Sorry Your Grandma Was Mugged, But I Was Busy Arresting A Hooker (4 min.)

This is a short video about the trial of Starchild, the ‘Million Dollar Male Escort.’ The video chronicles a street theater protest by Sex Worker Outreach Project-USA starring Robyn Few, Scarlot Harlot, Dee Dee Russell, Peter Keyes and Vanessa Nelson.

In the midst of a budget crisis which has caused clogging and early closure of Fremont and Alameda courts,the District Attorney of Alameda chose to prosecute an expensive case against a San Francisco male escort.

Starchild was charged with prostitution as a result of entrapment in the course of a sting operation conducted by the Fremont Police Department on December 5th, 2005.

“This would be hilarious if it wasn’t such a serious situation of entrapment,” says Carol Leigh from BAYSWAN, Bay Area Sex Worker Advocacy Network. “These two female vice cops lure Starchild, a very, very handsome male escort, to Fremont of all places and offer to pay him money for sex.”

San Francisco activists are outraged at this blatant inter-county sting, which by the D.A.’s own allegation, involved private activities by consenting adults, in another county. Starchild is a well-known activist, a San Francisco hero to many. An active Libertarian, Starchild ran for Supervisor in 2006 with his occupation listed as “escort/exotic dancer.” He is also known for the support he has offered others who are unfairly prosecuted for victimless offenses.
