Live Boston reports that Boston Police human-trafficking officers say they caught a prominent local attorney with his pants down - on account of the woman orally servicing him in his car - in a garage at the South Bay mall around 6:30 p.m. yesterday.
According to a police report, officers on patrol in the Mass and Cass area spotted Bruce Singal, 73, of Newton, pick a woman up at Allerton and Perison streets and then drive her to the nearby mall parking garage, where she was unable to complete the act for which she was allegedly paid $40 because police knocked on Singal's window first.
Singal is a former assistant US attorney and assistant Massachusetts attorney general. He is currently a partner in the downtown firm of Hinckley Allen. Police allege Singal tried to get out of arrest in part by bringing up his status as a prominent local lawyer.
In recent weeks, police have made a number of arrests of both customers and alleged pimps in an attempt to end the human trafficking at Mass and Cass they say goes along with the drug dealing in the area.
