Apparently when you are in Salt Lake City news moves a little slower in the celebrity world. Not that a father of an American Idol runner-up is necessarily a celebrity except that he wants to be. Anyway, if Jeff Archuleta lived in LA I think his arrest for soliciting prostitution would have become known in less than the six months it took in this case.
Back in January, David Archuleta's dad was getting umm massaged when the police was raided. He was the only customer which must have sucked for him and he is probably still thinking he is cursed. I think it is because he was such an a-hole on Idol and deserved it. So, the cops raid the place and find Jeff without any clothes on, but NOT actually being serviced sexually. So, the cops ask him if he had been serviced sexually and he admitted he had. Now, excluding the fact that he is a general prick and he was getting serviced at a massage parlor, one part of me says that he didn't lie to the cops and just took his punishment. The other part of me wants to call him an idiot because they had no proof. It isn't like they were going to bring in a CSI team and black light the place or something. And you know the woman in question wasn't going to admit anything and so he would have got away with it. He wouldn't have been arrested and wouldn't have had gossip sites writing about it all day.
Jeff's lawyer was spinning all the way to the end here. Even after Archuleta pleaded no contest, Jeff's lawyer said it was just because Jeff didn't have time to waste with a trial and that Jeff was getting legitimate massage therapy for his back. Oh, and his front.
