Prostitute put on probation after texting police detective

A PROSTITUTE has been placed on probation for 18 months for a raft of charges including offering an undercover detective sexual intercourse and oral sex without a condom.

Judith-Anne De Pasquale told the detective, who engaged her through text messages to an advertised prostitution contact, that $80 would buy him a "hot f*** and swallow" - indicating no use of a prophylactic.

The detective was asked to attend a Greenslopes address on April 14 and told to turn off his car.

Police prosecutor Elizabeth Smith told Monday's sitting of Proserpine Magistrates Court that De Pasquale said she couldn't leave the area because her husband needed to be close by.

At this point the detective declared himself as a police officer and De Pasquale attempted to use her phone.

A second detective attended to assist with the arrest, during which three phones were secured, containing numerous texts relating to prostitution services, along with 4000 images and 200 videos.

Ms Smith said De Pasquale told the officers her husband sent her out for prostitution.

She said during the arrest the 47-year-old used her bodyweight to swing her arm, carrying a phone, away from the detective.

Duty lawyer Sherrie Meade said De Pasquale used her website for swingers and advertised role play.

Magistrate Haydn Stjernqvist wasn't so forgiving and didn't take kindly to a lack of interstate criminal history being produced.

"I can't and don't believe that anyone that can commit this many offences … can have no history anywhere else," he said.

"The only fantasy involved in the prostitution charge is within your ears. There is nothing more than prostitution, plain and simple."

In addition to the charges of knowingly participating in the provision of prostitution and prostitution involving sexual intercourse or oral sex without using a prophylactic, De Pasquale faced charges of obstructing police and failing to appear in court on August 5 and 10.

She was charged with possessing tainted property, evading a taxi fare and stealing from Emerald Post Office.

Another charge arose on July 7, when a vehicle rented from Juicy Rentals in Kingsford-Smith Drive, Brisbane, by De Pasquale and her partner was located in Rockhampton.

The total amount of overdue payments equalled $2100 - which Ms Smith asked to be split between De Pasquale and her partner.

For the unlawful use of a motor vehicle and evading the taxi fare, De Pasquale was ordered to pay $1050 and $60.50 in restitution respectively.

Convictions were not recorded.
