Heidi Fleiss's Arrest

The media saga that came to be known as Heidigate began in a lavish suite at the Beverly Hilton, where an undercover sting operation led to the 1993 arrest of Heidi Fleiss, a.k.a. the “Madam to the Stars.” Fleiss operated a high-class prostitution ring for Hollywood’s rich and famous for two years. Though she wasn’t present at the time, four LAPD officers posing as Japanese businessmen videotaped their meeting at the hotel with prostitutes she sent. Both the videos and audio recordings of conversations between Fleiss and an undercover detective posing as a client were used to against her in court. She was convicted of money laundering and tax evasion in 1997.
