Prostitution case has "Wife Swap" connection
(CBS/AP) PEMBROKE, N.Y. - A prostitution charge against an upstate New York lawyer has been dropped, after he was found asleep in a car with former teen pageant contestant Alicia Guastaferro, who appeared on the reality show "Wife Swap."
Rochester attorney James Doyle still faces a drunken driving charge over the incident in August.
The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported that the soliciting a prostitute charge was dismissed in Pembroke Town Court, where Doyle is being prosecuted along with Guastaferro, who's now 21.
Guastaferro has pleaded not guilty to prostitution and drug possession charges.
The New York Daily News reported she was featured in an episode of the ABC show "Wife Swap" getting spray-tanned by her father and pitying the less attractive.
According to the Democrat and Chronicle, Doyle said he has been longtime friends with the Guastaferro family and Alicia.
Doyle and Guastaferro were arrested at a New York Thruway travel plaza last summer. Court documents say she told state troopers Doyle paid her as much as $700 twice a month to spend the night and have sex, which he denied.
