Two found guilty of solicitation
By DORA MCALPIN
Two Durham women were found
guilty of solicitation for prostitution
Thursday, but charges of solicitation for
crimes against nature were dropped.
Sandra Jane Brown, 21, and Diana
Lane Fortinberry, 27, were arrested in
mid July, following a police under
cover investigation of University Mas
sage on W. Franklin Street, where the
Brown and Fortinberry were both
charged with one count of solicitation
for prostitution. Brown was originally
charged with two counts of solicitation
for crimes against nature, while For
tinberrry was charged with one count
of the offense.
Brown was found guilty of solicita
tion for prostitution based on the
testimony of a Durham police officer
who said that Brown offered him sexual
favors in return for money.

two earlier satellites into useless orbits.
After three postponements, Discov-

- because a private plane was circling
offshore for a close, but hazardous, view
of the launch. It was chased out of the
area by an Air Force plane and the

it would take action against the pilot.

Fortinberry pleaded guilty to the
charge of solicitation for prostitution.
She said, however, "I'm not a prostitute;
it's just something I did ... and I have
no intention of ever doing this again."
In a private interview with Fortin
berry Thursday, Orange County Pro
bation Officer Pamela McSwain deter
mined that Fortinberry was a good
candidate for probation since she
judged Fortinberry to be genuinely
sorry for her offense.
Because of this, Fortinberry received
a two-year probation sentence.
Under the terms of her probation,
Fortinberry has two weeks to pay the
Chapel Hill Police Department $40, the
fee that an undercover police officer
gave her when he requested a massage.
Judge Peele dropped all charges of
solicitation for crimes against nature

exists in North Carolina making this
"She was charged with violating a
statute, but there's no such crime,"
Bendley said. "They charged her with
soliciting; the statute doesn't have
anything to do with soliciting."
To commit a crime against nature is
a felony, but there is no penalty for
solicitation, according to Bendley.

This graduate student and commuter,
applying for a hardship parking permit,
explained he was suffering from
"reverse culture shock" due to the stress
of finding a parking space in the P-Lot,
two miles from campus.
More than 2,000 applications have
been submitted to Student Government
by graduate and undergraduate stu
dents hoping to obtain one of 500
permits still available on various lots
on campus, including the new lot near
the Student Activities Center.
Larry Davis, chairperson of Student
Government's parking task force, said
"The hardship permits will not be

basis. Instead, each application will be
carefully reviewed by a five-person
committee on the basis of seniority and

"To solve the parking problem, we
have to pedestrianize thecampus,"
Parker said. "There simply aren't
enough spaces to accomodate the cars
of undergraduate residents, graduate
students and commuters."
Because of football Saturdays, it is
not possible for dormitory residents to
use the new lot at the SAC.
