This is so sad, knowing how difficult things have been lately for Alison Carey.
The 55-year-old woman — who’s the older sister of superstar Mariah — was arrested in the upstate New York town of Saugerties on Friday following an undercover prostitution sting by police.
Alison was booked on a prostitution charge into the city jail, after cops allege that she was working illegally out of a local hotel and soliciting money in exchange for sexual favors to an undercover cop.
Police are also concerned that the woman, whom they described as a transient, is HIV positive.
Authorities are now encouraging anybody who may have had sexual relations with Alison to go to a doctor immediately to get tested.
One of Alison’s online ads seeking clients, posted on Friday evening, uses some phrasing similar to Mariah’s 1995 hit Fantasy, and reads:
“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.'”
Police were clued into Alison’s activities after being tipped off about the ads.
For now, she’s been arraigned and sent to jail in lieu of $1,000 bail, and she’s due in Saugerties Town Court on Tuesday.
A sad, sad story.
