CHICAGO, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- A 71-year-old Chicago judge said he had no comment when asked why his name was on documents seized in a brothel raid in his judicial district.
Cook County, Ill., Criminal Court Judge William H. Wise said, "I don't know anything about it, so I have no comment," when a reporter pointed out his name appears multiple times on a document police described as a list of "past client information." The evidence was obtained in a 2007 raid of documents belonging to Kimberly Miniea, described by the Chicago Sun-Times as "the notorious madam" who boasted her brothel was protected by a "VIP book" of friends who made sure "she did not have problems with police."
Miniea was never imprisoned, despite several undercover investigations and two convictions for felony pandering.
There is no evidence the "VIP" list of more than 100 names, seized with half-empty boxes of condoms, prostitution advertisement advertisements and DVDs of animal sex, has been updated since 2002, the newspaper said.
