NEW YORK – A lawyer for a former escort service booker says his client revealed that former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer met regularly with prostitutes over an 18-month period before he resigned.

The lawyer, Marc Agnifilo, spoke outside court after his client, Temeka Lewis, was sentenced on Monday to one year’s probation.

She worked for the Emperors Club V.I.P. escort service when she set up the February 2008 meeting between the prostitute and “Client-9.” Spitzer was referred to as Client-9 in court papers.

Lewis pleaded guilty in May 2008 to conspiracy charges in a case brought against the escort service that delivered high-priced prostitutes to wealthy men.

Spitzer resigned as governor when it was revealed he was Client 9. He was never charged.
