It's the Principle, Darn It!



I mean $120 bucks doesn't sound like much when you're a high-powered partner at a big law firm and you've allegedly got two call girls and a bag of weed at your fancy home, but it's not about the money, really:
The escort arrested at the Palm Beach home of well-known real estate lawyer Richard Holt with a baggie of marijuana in her lady parts will not be serving jail time after all, Gossip Extra has learned.

Jessica Johnston, 25, of Fort Lauderdale, has been allowed into a pre-trial intervention program that the Palm Beach County State Attorney reserves for first time offenders.

As a result, she’ll serve five hours of community service and pay a $50-fine, according to court records.

Johnston’s due back in court in October to prove that she followed the conditions — and the case will be dropped.

The move avoids an embarrassing trial in which Gunster Law attorney Holt, 71, could have been called to testify about why exactly he called Johnston and another escort to his $1.1 million-home at 156 Seagate Road on May 18.

Holt reportedly paid $380 for them to show up.
They wanted $500.

A dispute erupted, and one of the ladies called 911.
Listen, I don't care if the dispute is about five dollars or five thousand dollars, a deal's a deal and a contract is a contract.

I have to admit -- I like this guy!

  2. I wanted to read Mr. Holt's bio on the gunster.com website but I can't find it. He's listed on the flabar.org website as being in their WPB office. What's up?

  5. My first reaction to this news is whether he took Viagra or Cialis an hour before they showed up.

  9. It's called "up-selling" people, and its pretty standard, from legal fees, to car deals, to escorts.

    Never invite two strangers to your home if you are alone either. Two witnesses against one, you loose.

  10. Did he pay extra for her to season her marijuana?
