    Woman who ran Atlantic Companions trapped by her laptop... PunterPress

    A SYDNEY woman operating a high-class online escort agency in London cared for her girls and was not running "sheila's wheels" to make money, a court has been told.

    A jury of nine men and three women retired at London's Southwark Crown Court today to consider the guilt of Larissa Miesnieks, 39, who is charged with controlling prostitution for gain, and acquiring criminal property.

    Between January 2006 and June 2010 Ms Miesnieks operated a website called Atlantic Companions, advertising women for escort services, from which she derived some STG300,000 ($443,460) the jury has been told.

    Prosecutor Lawrence Aiolfi said that by developing a document titled Information For New Girls - which outlined a suggested appearance, including underwear recommendations - Ms Miesnieks was controlling her staff.

    "She is making it clear to them that not only are these rules that are being set down, but these are guidelines to provide feedback ... three bad reviews and the girls should be removed from the website," Mr Aiolfi said.

    If Ms Miesnieks indeed "controlled" the women, the 30 per cent commission she took from their escort rates was dealing with the proceeds of crime, the prosecutor alleged.

    However defence barrister Mark Seymour said Ms Miesnieks denies the charges, adding that her actions were in the interest of her workers.

    During a trip home to Sydney, the defendant arranged for flowers to be delivered to one of her escorts for her birthday, showing that she "genuinely cares", Mr Seymour said.

    "This operation started off a little bit like a cooperative. `We are all mates, let's get together and ... start our own business'.

    "...It's not some kind of sheila's wheels for the escort industry, where they set out to make as much money as possible at any expense to the girls."

    From the bench, Alexander Layton QC reminded the jury that neither prostitution nor profiting from operating an escort agency, were illegal in the UK.

AN 18-month long case came to a close today as the Southwark Crown Court found Larissa Miesnieks not guilty of controlling prostitution for profit and acquiring criminal property. Australian born Miesnieks was facing two years imprisonment on the charges. Prostitution and the operation of escort agencies are legal in the UK, but managers are unable to profit from controlling staff.
