Reema Bajaj Is Going All the Way

Reema N. Bajaj

Next week, Reema Bajaj, the comely Illinois attorney who has been accused of prostitution, will celebrate her 26th birthday. (You can look up her date of birth on the DeKalb County criminal docket.)

But how happy will that birthday be? There’s a cloud looming over this lovely lawyer….

She’s still the subject of pending criminal charges. Here’s the latest news on Reema N. Bajaj, via the Daily Chronicle:

During a court hearing Tuesday at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Sycamore, Circuit Judge Robbin Stuckert read the charges against Reema Bajaj, 25, of the 100 block of Penny Lane in Sycamore.

(Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes — and maybe other orifices, too?)

The three counts [of prostitution] stem from two incidents – one Aug. 13, 2010, and the other in May, according to court documents. Her bond was set at $5,000, and she posted the $500 necessary to be released from jail.

She has pleaded not guilty to the charges. The trial is set to begin March 12.

She looks cute even in her mugshot.

“Gutsy move,” said a friend of Bajaj’s, commenting to ATL on her decision to go to trial. “But knowing her, I’m not surprised. All it takes is one juror….”

Bajaj is represented by a seasoned criminal defense lawyer, David Camic of Camic Johnson. On its website, the firm touts itself as “The Lawyers Other Lawyers Hire” (when accused of prostitution).

What are the terms of the representation? Bajaj is surely no stranger to hourly billing — but an alternative fee arrangement might work here too.
