Last month two local inner-city Brisbane sex workers were involved in a historic prosecution. Three other sex workers were defrauded by the same man but were unable to come forward due to privacy and confidentiality concerns. The accused plead guilty to two counts of Fraud and “Dishonestly gaining benefit or advantage.” He was ordered to pay each worker $350, plus was fined &750 for each offence.
