Marie Mckinlay from Lewisham, South London, was cleared today of using her website Agency Allure as a cover up of controlling prostitution for gain.

Despite admitting to the Southwark Crown Court that her two favourite things in the world were “money and sex”, her defence was that she was just an agent on the Agency Allure escort website.

40-year-old Mckinlay, who is pregnant with her third child, was cleared of the charges on the basis that she did not control the prostitutes on the website and was indeed just an agent.

Mckinlay used to work as an escort for Agency Allure but quit when she became pregnant with her first child. She managed to earn up to £350,000 a year in her role as an agent.
