LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) _ Authorities have dropped prostitution and drug charges against the second of two women arrested earlier this year in what officials said was a prostutition ring run out of a million dollar suburban Atlanta home.
Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter says charges against 30-year-old Nicole Probert were dismissed about a week ago because she helped prosecutors build cases against her co-defendants.
One of them, former Penthouse model Lisa Ann Taylor, pleaded guilty in October to prostitution and drug charges. She was sentenced to seven years of probation and ordered to pay $150,000.
Porter says the remaining defendants are customers.
Probert and the 43-year-old Taylor were accused of running a brothel in Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth, one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in metro Atlanta and home to some high-profile entertainers and athletes.
Probert's attorney, Steve Sadow, said in October that his client would not accept a deal similar to Taylor's.
