Prosecutors have used a federal racketeering law to indict a Wichita woman on charges of running an escort service as a front for prostitution.

An indictment unsealed Thursday charges 60-year-old Saundra J. Lacy with 27 counts of racketeering in promotion of prostitution.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says prosecutors do not know if Lacy has a lawyer yet. She is in custody and is expected to make a court appearance Friday. The phone at her business, Jessie’s Primetime Entertainment, has been disconnected.

Prosecutors allege Lacy required escorts to carry condoms and engage in sex at the customer’s request.

Escorts typically charged $160 for a half hour and $185 for an hour.

The business allegedly had as many as 20 escorts who accepted credit cards and offered customers discount coupons.
