Lawyer William J. Brennan says Susan Finkelstein might have dropped double entendres in her Craigslist ad but never explicitly offered sex.
Brennan says the 43-year-old University of Pennsylvania graduate student wanted to take her husband to a game between her beloved Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees.
Brennan says the self-described "buxom blonde" was trying to score tickets online, as she had in the past.
Finkelstein was arrested Tuesday after meeting at a suburban bar with an undercover police officer responding to the ad.
Brennan says he hopes to get the charges dismissed.
