link to her law firm website. Here's an excerpt from the Dekalb Daily Chronicle account of Ms. Bajaj's arrest (with acknowledgement to the ABAJournal):
A Sycamore attorney turned herself in to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday after a warrant was issued charging her with prostitution.
Reema N. Bajaj, 25, of the 100 block of Penny Lane in Sycamore, is charged with three counts of prostitution, stemming from two incidents Aug. 13 and another May 10. [ . . .]
DeKalb Police Lt. Gary Spangler said Bajaj's arrest followed an investigation into an unrelated case where detectives discovered emails sent between Bajaj, a suspect in an unrelated case, and a DeKalb man. Spangler said the emails were explicit regarding the arrangements and led to two of the prostitution counts from Aug. 13.
Those counts contend that Bajaj offered to perform a sexual act for $100 – a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail – and that the act was committed within 1,000 feet of a school – a Class 4 felony punishable by up to three years in prison. [ . . . ]Trevarthen said Bajaj admitted to engaging in prostitution before she became a licensed attorney last November, but that she denied such activity since then. The evidence, Trevarthen said, says otherwise, as she was charged with one count of prostitution from May 10.
Got to like the fact that Attorney Bajaj was a prostitute until she found something "better." I'd say she gives the profession a black eye, but plenty of us having been doing that all along, including BigLaw, politicians with law licenses, certain Judges and some Supreme Court Justices.
Upon reflection, good luck to Ms. Baja, here's hoping she can put this in her past and possibly move on, having learned life lessons that she can compassionately share with clients and others.
