Call girl ran vice ‘Sheilas’ Wheels’ firm

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A FOR­MER call girl ac­cused of net­ting £300,000 by con­trol­ling high-class pros­ti­tutes ran a ‘Sheilas’ Wheels for the es­cort in­dus­try’, a court heard.

Larissa Mies­nieks ( above), 39, claimed the lu­cra­tive vice op­er­a­tion she’s ac­cused of run­ning was akin to the fa­mous car in­sur­ance firm aimed at women driv­ers.

The Aus­tralian, an es­cort her­self for ten years, is said to have tar­geted big-spend­ing ‘City Boys’ for lunchtime vis­its via the At­lantic Com­pan­ions and purebrit agen­cies she ran up to 2010.

Her bar­ris­ter told ju­rors at South­wark Crown Court that the en­ter­prise was run as a co-op­er­a­tive, say­ing it was the girls who had con­trol in the agency.

He said: “It was a sort of Sheilas’ Wheels for the es­cort in­dus­try.

“The de­fen­dant has ex­plained a num­ber of the girls are her friends.

“You may think that what does come over is that she gen­uinely cares for them.”

Mies­nieks, of, Ful­ham, west London, de­nies con­trol­ling pros­ti­tu­tion for gain and ac­quir­ing crim­i­nal prop­erty.

The trial con­tin­ues.
