A MUM who works as a part-time lawyer rakes in £45,000 a month as a prostitute, and her husband couldn’t care less.
Ex-stripper Katherine Sears – mum to a four-month-old boy – has defended her dual careers, telling an American broadcaster that “prostitutes are some of the best people I’ve known.”
She and husband John Sears are criminal defence attorneys who run a joint law firm in Des Moines, Iowa.
The couple met at law school and, according to their website, if she isn’t in court, “I usually work from home so that I’m around to be a mom for my kids.”
Katherine splits her time between working as a prostitute for three weeks in Nevada – the only state where prostitution is legal – and a part-time lawyer for a week in Iowa.
She told WNDU News: “I like sex. Sex is fun. And I can get paid for it.”
Katherine estimated that she earns up to £45,000 in less than a month while working as a prostitute.
John told the broadcaster he “doesn’t really care that much” about his wife’s other job, as she was already working as a prostitute when they started dating several years ago.
“LOVE MY JOB”
The couple are adamant it’s “consensual sex”, as she can choose whether to be paid to have sex, or turn away a potential client.
Katherine said that women who speak openly about their sexuality are “degraded” and stigmatised as “bad” people.
Despite that, she’s keen to push for all of America to decriminalise prostitution.
She’s so agitated about protecting people’s rights, that she is taking on prostitution cases charge-free.
Their website says that because Katherine “thinks it’s absolutely unconscionable that the government restricts women’s ability to condition consent to sexual activity on payment, I’m offering pro bono – that means free – representation to women and others charged with prostitution in Polk County, Iowa.
“I’ve spent two years as a prostitute in a legal brothel, and a few years as a stripper, and I loved my job.

“I’m more familiar with the realities of sex work than the lay person is.
“I support your choices and your bodily autonomy, and I promise not to make you feel like a criminal… because you aren’t.
“I’m agitated that you’re being charged and I want to look for any possible legal way to get evidence suppressed.”
