Hun­gar­ian woman pleads guilty to pros­ti­tu­tion

Record Observer - - News -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — A woman found hid­ing naked in a closet dur­ing a drug raid at a Stevensville res­i­dence faces de­por­ta­tion af­ter plead­ing guilty to pros­ti­tu­tion, ac­cord­ing to Queen Anne’s County State’s At­tor­ney Lance Richard­son.

Hun­gar­ian cit­i­zen Ilona Papp, 31, whose last known ad­dress is Mi­ami, Fla., pleaded guilty to the sin­gle charge Aug. 31 in Queen Anne’s County Dis­trict Court.

The Queen Anne’s County Drug Task Force ex­e­cuted a war­rant Aug. 29 at 113 Anna Carol Drive, the ad­dress of John Oday. While con­duct­ing surveillance on the Oday res­i­dence be­fore en­try, un­der­cover of­fi­cers ob­served a blonde woman be­ing dropped off at Oday’s home, Richard­son said. When po­lice made en­try into the house, they found her naked and hid­ing in a closet with John Oday nearby.

In her pos­ses­sion, Papp had a pass­port, a work visa, a large sum of cash — in ex­cess of $7,000 — and 80 un­used con­doms, Richard­son said.

Nei­ther Papp nor Oday could ex­plain to po­lice how they were ac­quainted with one an­other, he added.

A search of Papp’s cell phone re­vealed she was post­ing her es­cort ser­vices on sev­eral web­sites along with her pic­ture, po­lice said. They re­ported find­ing a used con­dom next to the closet where she was hid­ing.

Ev­i­dence lo­cated at the scene in­di­cated Oday paid $750 for two hours of Papp’s ser­vices, Richard­son said.

Papp was held in the Queen Anne’s County De­ten­tion Cen­ter for three days, from her ar­rest Aug. 29 un­til her guilty plea on Aug. 31. Her case was ex­pe­dited so that she could plead guilty, be re­leased from jail and then de­ported to Hun­gary, Richard­son said.

Papp will likely be barred from re­turn­ing to the United States fol­low­ing this con­vic­tion, he added.

Po­lice also dis­cov­ered trace amounts of co­caine, 94 Methid­i­olone (steroid) pills, and 46 grams of liq­uid testos­terone in Oday’s res­i­dence, Richard­son said.

Oday was ar­rested and has been charged with pos­ses­sion of con­trolled danger­ous sub­stances, pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia and pros­ti­tu­tion.

He was re­leased by a Dis­trict Court Com­mis­sioner pend­ing trial Oct. 13 in the Dis­trict Court.
