A Fairleigh Dickinson University physics professor is in custody for allegedly running a prostitution website involving about 200 women and more than 1,200 johns, police said Monday.
David Flory of New York City, who teaches on the FDU-Metropolitan campus in Teaneck, was arrested Sunday while sitting in a Starbucks in Albuquerque, N.M., said Lt. William Roseman of the Albuquerque police. Flory, who ran the site mostly from New York, owned a vacation home in Santa Fe, N.M., Roseman said.
Flory was charged with 40 counts of promoting prostitution and other charges. He was being held in Albuquerque on $100,000 bail late Monday.
I suppose it makes a certain kind of sense. After all, the World Wide Web was invented by physicists at CERN, and physicists pioneered open-access online publishing with the arxiv…
Of course, Flory didn’t have all the details down:
Flory told police he did not make money off of the website and instead saw it as a hobby
Prostitution: You’re doing it wrong.
