Hooker Booker in Spitzer Scandal Avoids Slammer

Tanya Hollander of Rhinebeck, N.Y., pleaded guilty to conspiracy on Aug. 25

A woman accused of helping arrange trysts between pricey escorts and their customers has been sentenced to one year of probation for her role in the prostitution scandal that forced Eliot Spitzer to step down as New York's governor.

Tanya Hollander of Rhinebeck, N.Y., pleaded guilty on Aug. 25 to conspiracy to violate the travel act. It's against the law to cross state lines while furthering an illegal business.

All four employees of the Emperors Club VIP who were arrested in March have now admitted their roles in the illicit enterprise.

Spitzer resigned March 12 after court papers referred to him as "Client-9," a man who met a prostitute on Feb. 13 in a Washington hotel.

On Nov. 6, federal prosecutors announced they will not bring criminal charges against Spitzer.
