Police Charge 71-Year-Old With Prostitution in Glastonbury

A 71-year-old woman was arrested on prostitution charges at Homewood Suites in Glastonbury Friday.

OUTSIDE HARTFORD, CT -- A regional narcotics task force arrested a 71-year-old local woman on prostitution charges after police say she arranged to have sex for money in a hotel.

Sygun Liebhart, 71, of Westport, placed an ad on the website Backpage.com promoting herself under the “escort” section as “Lola,” according to police.

Liebhart met with an individual at Homewood Suites, at 65 Glastonbury Boulevard in Glastonbury, and made a deal to perform sexual acts for money, police said. Members of the East Central Narcotics Task Force then placed Liebhart under arrest.

She was charged with a single count of prostitution and was released on $500 non-surety bond.

funny how many will blame the left or the right, democrat or republican when it was both parties. Most people have no clue how our system works, they will blame the president for everything. Bill Clinton signed the republican 104th congress "contract with America" which had 10 bills one being the balanced budget amendment, easy to look up at the library of congress. The republicans had complete control of all three Houses from 200 to 2006, from 2006 -2008 the democrats controlled the House and Senate and things started going south. From 2008-2010 the democrats had complete control of all three Houses and had a rare super majority in the Senate meaning the could pass or repeal any legislation they wanted without any GOP opposition because of their super majority, they had a filibuster proof Senate. No new gun legislation, just 5 trillion added to the debt, failed stimulus packages that sent over $600 million tax dollars to solyndra and A123 battery which both went bankrupt, the Obama care fiasco that we will be paying for soon. The voters were so upset they voted Pelosi and the democrats out of the House and took away their filibuster proof super majority in the Senate. After that Obama could not get his budget passed, in 2011 it was rejected 97-0 in the Senate, in 2012 it was rejected 99-0 in the Senate and 414-0 in the House, not one vote, not one democrat voted for Obama's ideas after his failed 2 years. The democrats had a real chance to change things but they failed us.

You people obviously do not know Glastonbury, CT. Small, rich town with about zero crime. Large, well-funded, well-equipped yet extremely bored police department - they even have a S.W.A.T. vehicle! Any crime other than a traffic incident or some bratty teenager with a spec of weed or alcohol gets their full attention. They probable stormed the hotel with 40 officers in full combat gear only to find a tired-looking old lady.

She was wrong for having drugs, and being a prostitute. I read some of these comments and they are just plain ignorant. So you can all go to hell, because she was wrong.

Why is she wrong life baxton? Because she is a prostitute? She has a job, you may not see it as being right but it is her life, her decision to be a hooker. If she wants to supplement her income by being a hooker that is her choice, she is not stealing or mugging people. Okay so grandma is an escort, she is not a street walker but even that would be her choice too. If she can live with herself and make a decent living why should we care? Same with abortion, being gay or believing or not believing in a Deity, that is your choice, some people think it is wrong, some think it is right. I am not here on this earth to judge her or anyone else, what they do is between them and their God, it does not effect my life. It may be wrong in your eyes but there are things you and I do that some people would say is wrong too even though we think it is right.

These laws against prostitution - against women generally - are totally religious driven horse pucky. It's time now to retire these blue and inappropriate laws, some of the last controls the religious tyrants have over reason and common sense.
