'Mansion Madam' Carry On Amidst Legal Proceedings'

Lisa Ann Taylor's attorneys say the alleged "Mansion Madam" of Sugarloaf Country Club will try to keep herself busy as her court case progresses.
Mark Issa, a Norcross-based attorney working with Taylor, said the indictment of the 43-year-old former Penthouse Pet on racketeering, drug and prostitution charges Wednesday was disappointing but not unexpected.
"We kind of knew where [the Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office was] heading," Issa said Friday during a brief news conference that his office planned.
Taylor, known professionally as Melissa Wolf, was arrested in January along with Nicole Probert, 30, an associate who performed as an adult entertainer under the stage name "Naughty Nikki."
The Gwinnett grand jury indictment alleges that the women performed sexual acts together with clients for money. It also accuses them of procuring drugs and of running a criminal enterprise from Taylor's million-dollar home at Sugarloaf Country Club in Duluth. Taylor's house is subject to forfeiture under racketeering laws.
Both Taylor and Probert have denied the charges. Taylor has said she had been trying to leave the adult entertainment industry before her arrest, working as a real estate agent. She has since rekindled her career as a nude dancer, capitalizing on her notoriety as the "Mansion Madam."
But Taylor recently told reporters that club owners have grown concerned about booking her as an entertainer because of the stigma associated with the drug and prostitution charges.
"She's going to try to continue to make money," Issa said.
