PHOTO: Cristina Warthen, Stanford Law School Call Girl, Guilty Of Tax Evasion

Things aren't looking too good for Cristina Warthen, the Stanford Law School Grad who paid her way through law school as a professional escort and married David Warthen, the founder of AskJeeves.com, now Ask.com. According to LATimes.com:

"A Stanford law school graduate who allegedly boasted online that she paid off her student loans by working as a high-priced call girl pleaded guilty Monday to tax evasion and agreed to pay $313,134 in penalties.

Cristina Warthen, 35, who went by the name Brazil and advertised on a website called TouchofBrazil, traveled across the country to provide her services from 2001 to 2003, according to court documents filed by federal prosecutors in Northern California. She now lives in Los Angeles.

Formerly known as Cristina Schultz, Warthen married Ask Jeeves founder David Warthen. In 2004, he sought to intervene in the case and said the money she received was a gift from him.

Cristina Warthen was indicted on one count of tax evasion based on her activities in 2003. U.S. Atty. Joseph Russoniello charged that she received $133,000 that year from her escort business and owed $25,424 in back taxes.

In pleading guilty, Warthen agreed to pay $313,134 -- the amount she received through her illegal enterprise, said Internal Revenue Service spokeswoman Arlette Lee."

Wow, David probably should have Asked Jeeves opinion before marrying Cristina...
