Jeff Archuleta, the father of seventh season American Idol runner-up David Archuleta, was charged with soliciting a prostitute in a massage parlor in January.
He pleaded no contest and paid a $582 fine after being busted at the Queens of Reiki on Jan. 14 in Midvale, Utah. During a raid on the massage parlor, Midvale officers found one client receiving services, according to news reports.
If you need that spelled out for you, the cops oblige:
"Two of our detectives went back to that room to stop the activity," Midvale Police Sgt. John Salazar said. "Inside they found a female masseuse and male client."
"At that time an interview was conducted and the male client admitted to receiving sexual gratification from the masseuse."
Jeff Archuleta, 41, was that male client, according to court documents.
His lawyer, Eric Bauer, told NBC4 in Midvale that he was there getting legitimate massage therapy for his back. It all starts out that way, sure. Nice work Jeff.
