HONOLULU – The attorney for Malia Arciero, a madam who operated her business out of the elite Oahu neighborhood Portlock for about a decade, will go to court Thursday, Oct. 23, to attempt to get drug possession and drug dealing charges against her dismissed.

Arciero, who said her elite escort business offered prostitution services to some of Hawaii’s most prominent law enforcement, politicians and entertainers, was arrested in April 2013, but on charges unrelated to her escort business.

Honolulu Attorney Gary Dubin, who represents Arcerio, said he’s filed a motion to dismiss the criminal complaint against Arciero based on “Outrageous Government Conduct and Entrapment, Coercing her confession, and seizing items without probable cause.”

Arciero admitted in an exclusive interview with Hawaii Reporter that she was a prostitute and madam.

As proof of her business operations, she provided two of her five “black books” to Hawaii Reporter, which listed clients’ names, phone numbers, emails and fetishes.

Arciero claims she was falsely arrested for drug charges so that Ryan Faulkner, a Special Agent with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement division, could force her to work as his informant.

Neither Faulkner nor the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement division has commented on the case.

Arciero has filed a separate civil lawsuit against Faulkner.

She accuses him of abusing his authority, taking money and drugs from drug and arms dealers, and sexually assaulting her while she was handcuffed at ICE headquarters.

Attorney Gary Dubin, who represents Arcerio, said he’s filed a motion to dismiss the criminal complaint against Arciero based on “Outrageous Government Conduct and Entrapment, Coercing her confession, and seizing items without probable cause.”
