That's how Gerry Murawski began his admission to LakeExpo that he did indeed pay for a prostitute while an elected official (an alderman at the time) in the City of Lake Ozark. The relevant audio clip from LakeExpo's 42-minute interview with Murawski, in which he admitted to the crime, is below.
Murawski said the girl — whom he admits paying for sex in 2015 — told him she was 20. However, the FBI and Columbia Police Department say she was 16, according to a later investigation document. In that case, Murawski's actions could constitute statutory rape, a Class D Felony now, but a Class C Felony in 2015, which held a term of up to seven years in prison.
The relevant FBI & Columbia PD documents from 2016 in which Murawski admitted to them, as well, that he did pay for sex with the girl, are below.
LakeExpo Editor: "It very explicitly says that you told them you paid for a prostitute and she turned out to be 16. And Missouri law at that time would have made that a Class..."
Murawski: "Oh, God, yeah. Well first I do not... I never had... this is the first time I ever heard that she was 16. It happened. I'm gonna tell you that. I'd rather you didn't print that, obviously, um, I thought she was 20. That's what I believe she had told me. Um... I... I grant you, I made a mistake. But I hate to have to pay for that, by the way."
