  • Attorney: Tiger Woods could face prostitution charges if he paid for sex in New York

    Tiger Woods

    Tiger Woods spent upwards of $60,000 for high-priced escorts from former madam Michelle Braun, the New York Post reported Friday.

    Braun told the paper that between 2006 and 2007, Woods paid for at least four dates with escorts from her roster. For one “pillow-lipped” Manhattan model named Loredana, the married billionaire paid $15,000 for a single “date,” Braun said.

    If Braun’s allegations are true, the golf-great could be in serious legal trouble, New York City-based attorney Tom Kenniff tells FoxNews.com

    “He could be charged with patronizing a prostitute, a misdemeanor in New York,” Kennif said. “Depending on the statute of limitations, if there are witnesses swearing out statements, and there is a money trail that can be corroborated, it’s a reasonable likelihood” that Woods could be charged.

    If convicted, Woods could face up to a year in jail, Kennif said.

    Alicia Maxey Greene, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, declined FoxNews.com’s request for comment about whether Woods could be charged, or about any potential investigation.

    Loredana, who admits to working for Braun and confirms that she did indeed accompany Woods on dates in Manhattan, described him as being a “really nice person” who had “manners.”

    The former Playboy “Cyber-Girl” said Woods purchased gifts for her, including a ring, diamond studs and a watch, the paper reports.

    “I had nothing bad to say about him,” she said.

    Braun said her escorts all described Woods as being “wild and a lot of fun …. He was tough to keep up with – with days at a time, just on a booze and sex bender.”

    She also said that all of her escorts were paid to do more than just go on dates with Woods; they were paid to have sex. “He liked girl-on-girl,” Braun said. “He had sex with them together.”

    Calls put in to Tiger Woods’ reps for comment were not immediately returned.

    The Hollywood madam also claims that both porn star Holly Sampson and lingerie model Jamie Jungers worked for her, although she says she did not send Jungers out on paid dates with him.

    Jungers told NBC’s “Dateline” that she was “absolutely” not a prostitute.

    Braun’s spokesman provided the Post with tax forms identifying both Jungers and Sampson as having received money from a company that was under her control this year.

    Last month, Braun was sentenced to three years’ probation and six months of house arrest for money laundering and sex trafficking. The charges were not connected to Tiger Woods.
