TheEroticReview.com Founder, David Elms, Pleads Guilty to Trying to Hire Hit Man
David Elms founded TheEroticReview.com in 1999 and eventually became one of the most influential men in the call-girl biz. His site allowed johns to review and rate prostitutes, and Phoenix cops say he used it to promote the notorious Desert Divas escort ring broken up in 2008. He's named as a defendant in that case.
As part of the Desert Divas investigation, police stumbled upon Elms, who told an undercover officer he wanted a call girl killed and one of his Internet competitors roughed up.
He also pleaded guilty to illegal control of an enterprise for his role in the Desert Divas promotion. He's scheduled to be sentenced on March 8 before Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Carolyn Passamonte.
