So Gary Kimmel was finally sentenced to prison today. And Marina City’s just fine without him. Here’s a wrap-up of the pimp-dentist story in prose…and limerick.
Kimmelgate has officially hit the fan, and score one for the blogosphere. The October 2006 issue of Chicago Magazine, hitting newsstands now, features a lengthy, scathing profile of Marina City’s alleged ‘pimp dentist’, Gary Kimmel–with several quotes from Yours Truly.
A surprise development in the Gary Kimmel hooker scandal, the Marina City story that just keeps on giving. One 35-year-old Jody Spears was indicted in federal court on charges of sex trafficking involving minors as young as 14 years old. According to an FBI affidavit, Spears is quoted as saying, ‘Some of my best girls were minors’–and identifying dentist Gary S. Kimmel as a ‘business partner.’
At the July 18 status hearing and notice of motion for Marina City’s most famous dentist, Gary S. Kimmel, the good doctor was granted a request to travel, but he and his attorney, Joseph Lopez, were reminded to mind the ‘restrictions.’ These were not specified, but it’s probably safe to assume that they include ‘don’t leave the country.’
