Former escort admits to money laundering
Natalia McLennan, once touted as New York’s most expensive escort at $2,000 per hour, pleaded guilty to money laundering in New York City in connection with the operation of the New York escort agency, New York Confidential, where she worked as a prostitute.
McLennan, who is from Montreal, moved to New York in 2000 and joined New York Confidential after meeting its pimp at a bar. She earned about $20,000 per week and worked for many years as an escort until arrested. In 2008, she published a book describing her life in prostitution entitled –My Rise and Fall as Natalia, New York’s #1 Escort.
During her time at New York Condidential, McLennan’s boss was Jason Itzler, the self-proclaimed “king of all pimps” who owned the escort agency. He pleaded guilty to money laundering and prostitution-related charges in connection operating the escort agency.
