Pennsylvania woman, Susan Finkelstein sentenced in ‘sex for World Series tickets’ case

Susan Finkelstein was sentenced to one year probation after she had been arrested for offering herself for sex in exchange for World Series tickets.

Finkelstein, 44, made headlines for the destructive move as she offered to sell her body in exchange for World Series tickets, claiming that she only wanted to see her beloved Phillies with her beloved husband of almost twelve years.

The woman claims that there was no sex-for-tickets deal.

“I don’t believe I did anything wrong,” the lifelong Phillies fan explained told CBS affiliate KYW-TV back in October. “I was just trying to see if I could get some cheap tickets and seeing what was out there.”

In fact, police in Bensalem say Finkelstein solicited an undercover police officer to perform sex acts for World Series tickets. The undercover officer connected with Finkelstein after seeing her ad on Craigslist that read: “Desperate Blonde Needs WS Tix.”

Finkelstein described herself as a “gorgeous, tall, buxom blonde diehard Phillies fan” in desperate need of two World Series Tickets. The rest of the ad read: “Price negotiable— I’m the creative type! Maybe we can help each other!”

“This is just an individual that got caught up in it, I guess in the hype of the Phillies World Series. She wanted her ticket at any cost and was willing to go the extra mile,” Fred Harran of the Bensalem Police Department said.

Finkelstein told the Philly station that she was only trying to make her ad stand out on the popular classified Web site.

“I figured people would probably be more likely to answer an ad if someone was described as attractive,” Finkelstein said to the station.
