Here's Holiday's bio from the American Courtesans website:
A Minnesota girl and a hippie at heart, Hilary Holiday is stunningly beautiful. High cheek bones and a figure of a Femme fatale, Hilary could probably draw a crowd simply by walking in the room. Her seductive, cat like prowess is apparent and alluring, and yet she is both holistic and grounded at the same time. Hilary came from a family that was devout in their religious beliefs. Church had always played a big part in her life and own personal religious beliefs were so strong that she attended bible college after finishing high school, but so many times life has other plans for us. Ending up pregnant out of wedlock and after a very violent incident with her father, Hilary made a choice to separate from the church. She began her own journey, a journey to find herself.

Attempting to make things right, Hilary married; which seemed to be the moral thing to do and would be more acceptable to her father. But, as they say, best laid plans, etc, etc. Her husband ended up being abusive, like her father, an all to common story. So after years of living in an abusive marriage, Hilary left in a deflated and suicidal state. Her decision to work for a pimp seemed like a better option than the marriage she was in. Leaving the abuse behind Hilary entered this world. Here is where her story will contradict what you have always heard in the past, that all pimps are bad. Hilary's pimp taught her how to work and how to stay safe and at the same time, she began getting her life together.

At one point, she became aware that she could do this job on her own. Hilary told her pimp she was going out on her own and he wished her well as she embarked on a life which was solely of her choosing. Today, Hilary lives with her three kids in a house that she bought herself. She runs her own business and has found her own spiritual path. She prides herself on adding to others lives and talks about handicapped clients who are so misunderstood by the outside world. Unlike those who believe that women are victims in this industry, Hilary speaks of those men who put her back together. She credits them for instilling in her the self-esteem that she so much needed growing up. Today Hilary's life is good and she is her own woman.

With this article - you are surely going to seal her fate for the future.  Why not see past the deed and see something for what she could do beyond this line of work.....maybe she is trying to better herself somehow....

This is a perfect example of a functioning person, an EMPOWERED woman who chooses to do this work. The fact that law enforcement spent all that time and resources on stalking this woman instead of using precious and limited resources on catching child predators which are operating in epidemic proportions is sad and highly questionable. Sex work is not for everyone this much is true, however there are people who are doing sex work from a healthy platform! I realize that many people will have a hard time wrapping their heads around this FACT but it is a fact nonetheless. Ruining a perfectly healthy and functioning life is not acceptable! Just as you shouldn't have the right to govern how people believe or don't believe in God, no one, no government, no ideology should have the power to determine what an ADULT personally chooses to do with his or her body, life and mind. This is called PERSONAL SOVEREIGNTY otherwise known as FREEDOM. if you knew what freedom looked like you would be able to recognize it. we are not free. sex work should be decriminalized. Why? This would establish harm reduction for the victims of trafficking (people who are forced) and you wouldn't be turning good people into criminals. Arresting sex workers no matter what their circumstances are is wrong. It does not serve society, it does not protect society, it's basically just a way to control people and profit off of people in a manner which is disgusting! How can you justify ruining a persons life simply because you don't agree with their personal choices? Choices that do not have a negative impact on you or society at large? Just because you might be offended simply isn't a good enough reason and does not justify anything. The police could have apprehended child sexual predators with the time and resources spent here. Instead of preying on this woman, there are plenty of child predators needing attention! I think police should direct all available resources at the problem of child exploitation, because even if they did so, it still wouldn't put a dent in what has fast become a worldwide epidemic. I guess the child victims needing to be rescued fall behind the need to go after adult sex workers whose clients are adults. Make sense to you because it makes absolutely no sense to me.

The cops seriously spent 6 months on this misdemeanor case??   

 Maybe I'd feel better about the lame state of MN, if you cops were, instead, spending your time patrolling the hundreds of neighborhoods that are literally death traps.  

This is what happened to me while in MN, and a 911 operator was on the line the entire time...  A cop never showed up, nor did an ambulance, and I stuck around along time because the guy I hit with my car never regained consciousness

After almost getting killed  by a gang of black guys that surrounded my car, when I mistakenly got off the wrong exit, and calling 911 and being told to state my location or she couldn't dispatch a unit when I could pinpoint my location. .. I vowed never to go near your ghetto state again...  Good thing I'm not a wimp like my mom, because she would have never made it out alive.

  I, on the other hand, went on the offence, and ran the kid, that was blocking my car, down, (broke my windshield, when he bounced over the car), that's when one kid started shooting at me.   

At that point, my pitbull, jumped out of the window that had gotten shot out of my car, and went right for the shooters nut sac.   

Long story short, after seeing these two kids buddies' take off running the second my dog jumped out the window.  I picked up my cell phone that was still connected to the 911 operator, and I told her she better send an ambulance. The 911 operator (another useless african american) still acted as blase as ever, even thought the kid my dog was mauling was SCREAMING for his life. 

 I told her if you don't care, why should I, and hung the phone up...  At which point I got out of my car, picked up the 9mm Glock the kid dropped, and called my dog off the bloody kid screaming for his mommy.  The kids arm was mangled beyond recognition, his pants were pulled around his ankles and his shirt was ripped to shreds.  I told the kid to tie his arm off or he was going to bleed to death.  ...whatever. 

I'm actually pleased the cops didn't come to my rescue, because my dog was such a bloody mess, they  would have probably tried to quarantine her, and I wouldn't have gotten to keep the gun.  

I  got in my car and continued on to Illinois.  

States want to ban pitbulls??   You should ban black people.  Your state is in chaos.  Keep arresting non-violent white women,  yeah, that's the ticket...

Hilary Holiday is an amazing women who actually fell prey to a stalker that she had earlier approached the police for protection against. She was denied help as at that time she didn't know who it was. This man, then began sending vulgar letters to everyone he could think of including her condo association, at which time they approached the police and this began a 3 month investigation for a misdemeanor offense. In the mean time, the guy who was threatening her and her children's lives and well being is still free and causing problems. (BTW, she isn't the first woman I've had another contact me about the same guy)

This case is a perfect example of police having to follow laws that are archaic and out dated. She was a productive member of society and kept her business separate from her home life, as most responsible adults do. And let's talk about her actions now that her business has been brought down.  I'd love to hear what you would do.... a) she could marry for money - truly legal and profitable enterprise in the US today...  b) go on welfare and of course work her way down the socioeconomic ladder, or c) have her and her kids who are of legal age to work all get jobs, pushing their schooling and well being to the side, and yes, at the same time work their way down into more dangerous neighborhoods and watch their lives fall apart! 

For many these choices seem better. For us women, it's our bodies and our lives, and we feel the government has no right to dictate what we do between two consulting adults behind closed doors... To date, government regulation of morality has failed, as it should, and yet, we persist.

Ironic as it is, even the couple interviewed didn't even know she was around till they were told and yet they were glad she was gone.... mull that over for a bit. Think about it, it wasn't too long ago us women weren't allowed the right to abortions or even to vote... being gay was illegal and you could go to jail for simply your sexuality. So many gays were stalked hunted down and the victims of hate crimes just as prostitutes are today. Oh,  and if you were black, well so many of the laws didn't apply to you.  It's truly time for change and I applaud Hilary for being honest and taking a stand... truly, I think your going to see a lot more of this, as the movement has already begun.... (for more about the documentary Hilary is in check out the film site at http://www.americancourtesans.com)

CityPages promotes prostitution and derives lots of dollars from it. At least this woman is an adult. The sexy photos reveal their real attitude toward women. Their hypocrisy is stunning.

I'm surprised to see so much support for prostitution!? Do all of you proponents feel the same way about legalization of marijuana? Just curious...

I can only say from my experience as a taxi driver that there is a less glamorous version of this at the low end level, of young women and motels and drug dealers, and girls wondering aimlessly on Lake Street... Seems like the police prefer that, as it makes it easier for them to keep track of what's going on. Perhaps they don't make enough money to afford $400 and that drives them crazy, so naturally they need to demonize it...lol

Quit with the regulations America... There is nothing illegal about free will to have or pay for sex. Get over it.

Prostitution should NOT be a crime... fuck you guys. This country boasts "freedom"... what a bunch of garbage. It's her own choice to do it, and peoples own choice to pay for it. There are risks with any job. This country and it's people need to get over themselves and their regulation.

Shame on you, City Pages. This is complete and utter sensationalist journalism. And wow, Juliana. Wow. Not all sex workers are inherently drug-addicted, alcoholic, or "damaged goods." This is a classic example of shaming a woman who's simply exerting autonomy over her body, and making a choice that is HERS and hers alone to make. The way this is covered is atrocious, and the screenshots of her breasts on the last page is a tasteless touch. Prostitution in this case is between consenting adults, so why all the animosity?

So, we have an escort paying condo mortgage and HOA fees, taxes, and supporting three kids back in Minneapolis - and she's a villain? Meanwhile, on the blotter, there's a cop accused of sexual conduct with a pre-teen girl... 

So glad Eden Prairie knows how to prioritize their efforts, heaven forbid they put the effort in to tackle real crimes.

Consenting adults. Prostitution is illegal but, porn is not? Don't they get paid to have sex also? Just legalize it.

Hey "Hilary"; get a real job and be a GOOD role model for your children you old lady! Granted its not like she killed someone, but I'm glad they caught her. She should have a much harsher punishment than paying a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail. Not mention, I'm sure she's a drug addict as well...look at her without make up. And I'm sure ALL of those photos on those sites were photoshopped considering how she looks in her mugshot.

They spent a lot of money during the MONTHS they were setting up a sting operation that will do what? A) Save lives. B) Stop crime. C) Protect rights. D) None of the above. How pathetic that our tax dollars go to trying to stop consenting adults from doing something that harms no one.

This is nothing more than sensationalism. And to include her pictures as well. How shameful. Articles like this are part of the reason our culture continues to dehumanize women. The police dealt with this; that's fine. Just let it be and get back to important issues that affect all of us like why is the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) still stalled in Congress?

Ross Levine

Wait, she was in a documentary called "American Courtesans"? Crackerjack detective work finding this local criminal EP police department...honestly they could bust every escort in the city if they wanted to, it's not terribly hard to find their "websites" and advertisements. I think they do crap like this from time to time just to make an example out of someone, and I definitely agree, it seems like a waste of their time. I'd rather see them go after underlying problems from otherwise more legitimate prostitution, like human trafficking and the like.

@otherdog Wow! I am quite tickled at how a person can get there rocks off by trying to destroy another person by by far the most bizarre tell i EVER heard of, being that i am born and raised in Minnesota. The article clearly was not about any adventure in what you call the "GHETTO" of Minnesota. It was about a woman who made her living doing what she thought was best. Rather she was white or not.  A word of advice- Go and get checked for schizophrenia, you may have a VERY severe case. P.S I'm Black!!! Roof roof otherdog...;-)

@kristendiangelo How in the world has this criminal matter brought down her business? The only thing that may have paused her business is the fear of serving jail time due to continued illegal activities after being arrested. Of note, she has taken down her profile on The Erotic Review along with her provider Internet site. However, if she is just given a fine and no jail sentence, it is almost certain that she will resume her lucrative career as an escort. She has shown very poor judgment in this entire matter. As an industry friend of hers, how can you trust her after she spun that tall tale about the SWAT team entering her condominium during the arrest? Her arrest and the revelation of her private legal name were not factors in bringing down her business. In fact, she adores attention. Why else would she partake in your documentary? In conclusion, she is only afraid of serving time in the county jail. If the judge allows her to walk, she will be turning tricks once again in order to pay the bills and support her provider persona.

@Britta Danielson It is wrong for her to sell sex but OK for City Pages to sell her sexuality for some advertising dollars, duh.

@Juliana Christa Berg Judging from your grammar and punctuation, I presume that you are a drug addict as well.

Minnesota are you an abolitionist? Abolitionists claim to care about women yet they absolutely feel entitled to disenfranchise women like Hilary, negating our right to choose for ourselves. You are just like a bad pimp frankly. You just tell yourselves you are in the right because you CARE about women. Your type of caring is SCARY.

It's sickening how people resent empowered women, especially women who are sexually empowered. It obviously bites minnesota_nice in the butt to see a sexy empowered woman.

You call yourself a friend? That's pretty rich. Maybe you are the one who contacted the property manager?

@Minnesota_Nice @kristendiangelo  you seriously are threatened by the actions of this woman??  Maybe you will change your mind when you get home invaded by a bunch of black hoodlums...  The worst comes to people that judge... It's called karma, and I bet when you are sitting duct taped to a chair, with a gag in your mouth, you'll wish the cops in your state were spending their time looking out for you, instead of oogling at a naked woman...  Oh, well, it's your taxpayer money at work, not mine.... u petty stupid woman...
