Premiering in theaters on Sept. The movie is a fictionalized take on a group of former strippers who would "fish" for rich men they drugged and then brought to strip clubs, running up huge bills on their credit cards. While the events the film loosely adapts actually happened, some major changes have been made. For example, the club in Hustlers isn't realbut is actually an amalgamation of several Manhattan clubs that came into play in Pressler's article.
The real Keo was working as a waitress at the New City Diner in Nanuet, New York to help her grandparents make ends meet, but left that job to take a gig as a dancer at a nearby gentleman's club called Lace, where she made more money than she ever would waiting tables.
There, they would charge them for private rooms, expensive meals, drinks and other services. Eventually, New Jersey cardiologist Zyad Younan realized he'd been scammed. Younan disputed the charges, saying he did not authorize any of the purchases, and must have been under the influence of drugs he hadn't knowingly taken when he did.
Younan told police that he met Karina Pascucci, one of the women working with Keo and Barbash, at a restaurant on Park Avenue. She had claimed that she was a nursing student, then introduced him to Barbash, and another one of the women in their group named Marsi Rosen. On June 9,Barbash was arrestedper Mercury News, and other arrests followed. According to the New York Postthe women were charged with counts of forgery, conspiracy, grand larceny, and assault, to which all of them pleaded guilty.
Pascucci and Rosen served weekends in jail for four months, and had five weeks of probation. Meanwhile, both Barbash and Keo didn't serve any jail time and were sentenced to five years probation. Vitolo was sentenced to a three-year probation. While the setting of the film is dramatized, just the story, it's all based in truth. By Jasmine Ting.
