Who would imagine two, probably tenured, professors doing this?


Former New Mexico professor arrested in prostitution probe

"A former University of New Mexico president was arrested on Thursday for an alleged role in a massive online prostitution scheme run by a New Jersey professor, police said on Thursday. F. Chris Garcia, 71, a former professor of political science, was arrested by Albuquerque police in connection with Southwest Companions, a web site with almost 1,400 members, Albuquerque police chief Ray Schultz said at a press briefing. Investigators learned that Garcia used the online name "Burquepops" and was a "moderator" on the Southwest Companions website..."


"...Garcia's arrest is the second in the investigation. David Flory, 68, a Fairleigh Dickinson University physics professor, was arrested on Sunday while surfing the Southwest Companions site from a Starbucks patio in Albuquerque...."


"...According to the University of New Mexico website, Garcia was President of the university from August 2002 to July 2003. He has also served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Vice-President for Academic Affairs, and Provost...."


"....The site included a three-tiered hierarchy system, whereby trusted "johns" could move up in status through certain acts with prostitutes..."


"...."They thought they could never be infiltrated because of the levels of security they tried to build into it," he said. Schultz said investigations were "ongoing" with many search warrants sealed. Charges of racketeering are expected to be added to the case...."
