News Release: 08/OCD Arrests/EJA
September 8, 2008


A female escort and her partner were arrested September 3 for defrauding and assaulting their clients. Detectives from the Organized Crime Division and officers and detectives from district stations collaborated on several cases. Their joint efforts resulted in the arrest of two individuals. There are a dozen known cases in Fairfax County that date back to December 2007. The most recent case occurred on Wednesday, August 27. In each case the victim called an escort service and met the female escort at a local motel or hotel. Once the money changed hands, the escort fled without providing her services. If the victim chased the escort, he was assaulted by the escort’s partner using an expandable baton. None of the injuries were life-threatening.

On Wednesday, September 3, Carl E. Worthy, 38, and Wendy K. Kopach, 37, both of 14571 Golden Oak Road in Centreville were arrested without incident at their home. They were both charged with three counts of obtaining money by false pretense and two counts of malicious wounding. Worthy was additionally charged with burglary. Both were transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center. The cases are still under investigation. Additional charges are expected.

Detectives believe there may be others with knowledge of the crimes. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Det. Diguilian at the Organized Crime Division at 703-802-2760 or Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES(274637) or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.

I'm glad FCPD is finally realizing that users of prostitutes are the "victims." That said, I wonder if anyone is dumb enough to come forward and complain to the police that he tried to pay for sex with this lady and got his ass kicked.

No paying for sex Mike, it's a Escort service. Your paying for their company. So Mr Sorce this is the Source/ Foundation of this logical statement, you stupid bastard.

You characterized her partner in crime as an "opportunistic animal" when she was in on the crime too. That makes her equally culpable. Who says she didn't convince this poor fellow to go along with her dastardly plans?

I think francois' point is that having known both them, the woman is capable of making far better decisions and staying on the rails if she would lose an association with a negative influence in her life. Fair point, and one that doesn't excuse her culpability.

I say heck, forget the law enforcement angle. Nothing better to discourage prostitution than a perception that a john could be a victim of both a scam and a beating. Even Eliot Spitzer might have stayed away.

Ok one more time, the only point i was making as far as saying i know them is just that i was shocked by seeing they were involvd in this, my comment about hoping she makes better decisions and thinking she would be better equiped to without him in her life was only an opinion. this is just very sad and she does have children, just sad all the way around. of course she's responsible for her actions

I’ve been watching this topic and saw it resurrected again.
The best thing they could do with this woman is lock her up and throw away the key. Unfortunately, I do know her and I can say that her problem is not the boyfriend. She started getting in trouble long before she met him. Everyone in his family agrees that she was his downfall. Eddie was never in trouble until he hooked up with her.
Look on the Va courts website...she is a career criminal. Always has been, always will be. The problem is, her offensives get more and more violent as she gets older...they need to get her off the streets before she really hurts someone.

Wait a second...

If prostitution is illegal, and the hooker runs off with the John's $$$ before he has the chance to have sex with her, doesn't charging her with "Obtaining money under false pretenses" seem a little odd??? I mean, it'd be one thing iff the poor bastard thought she was selling him some Civil War memorabilia or an old croquet set, that's perfectly legal. But in this case, the police are, in effect, punishing her and her partner for, basically, NOT having sex with someone for money.

It just seems odd to me.

Hence my post in the second post of this thread, FCPD is regarding prostitution consumers as the victims, hooray! (or hoe-ray!... sorry)

You are so funny. I doubt you know either of them at all given the facts of reality. Neither one is going to win poster parent of the year, but he owes over 70K in child support. Criminal behavior that she had nothing to do with. Perhaps if he bothered to get a job your position would have some merit. But he doesn't, he mooches off her child support checks.

As far as I can determine, 'escort' does not actually mean 'sex'.

Well, there's that, too. Sometimes "you're just paying for their time", and "time" can be anything... Of course, I don't speak from personal experience, I've never hired a call girl/escort/prostitute; I've always just opted to pay for sex the old fashioned way, you know, Valentine's Day, and other "relationship" stuff...

Heh, Valentine's Day is like buying a hooker for the whole year

"He went to Jared!"

You're probably right... I mean Hell, who wants to call the cops and tell them "I paid a hooker and she turned around and ran, taking all my money with her!"

Who knows? I thought it was interesting that she was charged as an accessory to malicious wounding.

Sounds like a dangerous woman to me. You pay to play, she doesn't play, and then she cuts you if you don't get out of the way.
