No contest plea in Archuleta sex case
The father of Season 7
American Idol runner-up David Archuleta has pleaded no contest to charges he patronized a prostitute.
The no contest plea stems from James J. Archuleta's arrest at a Utah massage parlor last January.
Investigators said they had been watching the massage parlor for several days after patients at a nearby doctor's office complained. The massage parlor was issued a summons for operating without a license and Archuleta a citation for solicitation of prostitution
because he was sexually gratified by one of the masseuse girls, the Tribune quoted police as saying.
