Lawrence spa owner wants some evidence tossed
SALEM, Mass. (AP) — The lawyer for the owner of Lawrence massage parlor where employees allegedly performed sex acts on customers wants evidence gathered in a police search of her home and vehicle dismissed as evidence.
In a motion filed last week, Lori Barron’s lawyer says Lawrence police officers went beyond their jurisdiction when they conducted the search at Barron’s Salem, New Hampshire home, and local officers present were acting as agents of the state of Massachusetts.
The Eagle-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1njcyRO ) reports that the motion also alleges investigating officers never told Barron that her attorney at the time was a target of the criminal investigation into The Day Spa for Gentlemen.
The 51-year-old Barron has pleaded not guilty to charges including maintaining a house of prostitution and human trafficking. She is free on $30,000 bail.
