Police Sting Nets "Cougar," 71, On Prostitution Rap

Elderly escort Sygun Liebhart is known as "Lola"

JANUARY 28--A 71-year-old woman was arrested Friday for prostitution after allegedly striking a “deal for sexual acts” with an undercover cop who met her inside a room at a Homewood Suites hotel in Connecticut.

According to police, Sygun Liebhart placed a backpage.com ad “promoting herself under the escort section.” Liebhart, pictured in the adjacent mug shot, used the alias “Lola,” cops reported.

A member of the East Central Narcotics Task Force arranged a rendezvous with Liebhart at her hotel in Glastonbury, where she was arrested. Liebhart was booked into jail in lieu of $500 bond.

In the January 25 backpage.com ad that caught the eye of investigators, Liebhart/“Lola” is described as a “perfect pleasure” who is “delicious, delectable, delightful.” The ad--titled “Older is Better”--noted that the septuagenarian hooker would only be in Glastonbury for three days.

A January 12 backpage.com ad listed “Lola”’s age as 60, noting that she is “well preserved” and “All natural.” The ad included a phone number along with the notice that “Lola” did not accept texts or e-mails, and did not book appointments after 8 PM.

In another online listing, Liebhart describes herself as a “truly mature escort with over 25 years experience in delivering a symphony of luxury and sensual delight to discriminating professional gentlemen both younger and older who can afford the best and who prefer their women a bit older but a lot better.” Prospective customers are advised to “savor the charms of maturity and submit yourself to sensuous abandon in the arms of a genuine Cougar.”

Some online ads have included photos of Liebhart lounging suggestively on a leather couch; wearing a blonde wig; posing in lingerie; and showing off her gams. And one NSFW shot--apparently snapped post-shower--highlighted her “busty 38DD.” (7 pages)
