Metro Police Specialized Investigations Division detectives have charged a Green Hills resident with promoting prostitution after determining that the “Holistic Massage-Complete Stress Relief!” service she advertised in a weekly newspaper also allegedly involved sex acts.
Veronica Wright, 61, of 4117 Lone Oak Road, was booked on the felony offense Tuesday.
Wright’s ad contained a telephone number and said that appointments were available from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Saturday, police said. Through the use of a police operative, who made an appointment and went to Wright’s home Tuesday, detectives said they learned that she charged $70 per hour for a massage, but would also allegedly request an additional $100 to perform a sex act.
Records found in the home showed that Wright had a number of clients, police said.
Wright was arrested on misdemeanor prostitution charges in June 2008 for operating a similar business from a home on Kimbark Drive in Green Hills, according to police. The court judgment was deferred in that case, for which Wright still owes $516 in court costs.
Wright’s bond on the promoting prostitution charge is set at $3,000.
