Accused madam’s attorney seeks records

'It has been a nightmare’ trying to get access to police-held evidence, lawyer says

Nan O’Reilly



Nearing five months since his client’s arrest, an attorney for a woman accused of operating a local prostitution business says he’s still trying to get access to police-held paperwork in the case.

Stephen Laiche, who represents alleged madam Nan O’Reilly, 58, has filed a motion asking District Judge Valerie Robison to order the Grand Junction Police Department to grant access to documents related to the investigation of Fuji Oriental Massage, 762 Horizon Drive. The documents are housed in the agency’s evidence room.

“It has been a nightmare to be able to look at this evidence,” Laiche told Robison during a hearing Tuesday morning.

Laiche said he is scheduled to review the documents Friday.

“If there are no problems, we’ll withdraw the motion,” Laiche said. “If there are problems, we’ll notify the parties that a preliminary hearing is needed.”

Robison scheduled a preliminary hearing for June 26.

O’Reilly was arrested in late November on numerous charges, including racketeering and pimping, after a 10-month police investigation. Authorities allege the longtime local massage parlor offered a host of prostitution services that yielded tens of thousands of dollars in profits. The money was used to pay taxes on several properties O’Reilly owned, including Fuji Massage, authorities claim.

O’Reilly is free on bond.
