The sister of pop music star Mariah Carey was arrested Friday in Saugerties on a prostitution charge, the Daily Freeman reports.
Police arrested Alison A. Carey, Mariah’s older sister, after an investigation found her soliciting money in exchange for sexual favors from an undercover police officer posing as a client. Police say Alison Carey, 55, was working out of a Saugerties hotel for at least a week, but would not identify which one.
Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra said Alison Carey was advertising her services on the Internet. According the Daily Freeman, one ad posted at 6:18 p.m. Friday contained two photos of Alison Carey and read:
“Im a pretty lady looking for guys who are looking to have some fun and get into a world of pleasure that other woman just cant provide two you,woman with the ability to make the earth move for you and to get you to see stars, oh yea with me its,’ITS SUCH A SWEET,SWEET FANTASY BABY, WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES I COME AND TAKE YOU ON AND ON.’ “
That last line is similar to the lyrics from “Fantasy,” Mariah Carey’s 1995 hit song.
Sinagra said that when police arrested Carey, she identified herself as the sister of Mariah. An internet search appeared to confirm the claim.
Police found as least two other internet ads posted by Carey on a website that includes an “adult category,” Sinagra said. Based on everything police has learned, they say anyone who sexual encounters with Alison Carey, especially if unprotected, should contact their doctors.
Carey was arraigned in Saugerties Town Court and sent to the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $1,000 bail, the Daily Freeman reports. She is due in Saugerties Town Court on Tuesday.
