Lawyer Accused of Running Escort Service Posts Bail

According to the New York Sun the New Jersey defense lawyer charged with a variety of offenses arising out of his alleged operation of an escort service (which, it is claimed, he took over running for a client after the client went to prison) was freed Thursday after posting bail in the amount of $1 million. Setting aside my concerns about the merits of the case for a moment – and they are legion – even the bail seems excessive. $1 million?? You’d think Paul Bergrin, the defendant, had committed a violent crime, or that he was some other sort of real criminal. I just simply do not understand why prosecutors get so jacked up by these call girl cases (well, actually, I do understand, but I think that the reasons are stupid).
