Judge Gives Probation To Escort Service Madame, But Tells Her "Your Career Is Over"

Monday, June 9, 2014

Federal Judge Sandy Mattice on Monday gave probation to an escort service madame, but told her, "Your career is over."

Noting that she will be on probation for three years, the judge told Tatiana Wallace, "You can't do this anymore."

Ms. Wallace said, "I made a mistake."

Her attorney, Myrlene Marsa, said she "is doing well and in a stable home environment. She plans to open her own shop."

Her sentencing range was 18-24 months.

The Union City, Tn.,  woman earlier pleaded guilty to interstate transport of an individual for the purpose of prostitution.

Ms. Wallace was arrested in a sting operation conducted by Chattanooga Detective Zach Fuller. Her business name was advertised in multiple states as "Dreamgirl Companions."

Prosecutor Jay Woods said, "The fact of the matter is the defendant recruited, advertised, and provided services that without her would not have taken place."

Attorney Marsa said her client offered an opportunity but did not manage or supervise. She said the defendant had previously been a part of an escort service that had been more forceful and had wanted to get away. She said, "She wanted to offer people a way to do this if they were going to do this that was humane and not coercive."


Judge Mattice decided to revisit the case in six weeks after getting information from the defendant's probation officer. He said, "Maybe it can become a home confinement if I can become satisfied that she has in fact turned her life around."

 However, he warned her, "You are now on law enforcement's radar screen, you are not realistically going to be able to go back into this business."

Slaxxon Regret

Back in the seventies my three oldest brothers had a buddy named Steve Slack. “Slack” was a star soccer player at Baylor and he grew up on Lookout Mountain, which is where I grew up.

Naturally, the place became known as the “Pink Palace” but lest ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Scottsboro Boys

There is a good-sized train tunnel that runs under the northern tip of Lookout Mountain, right next to Cummings Highway.
