‘Bling Ring’ Member Charged With Stalking, Solicitation of Rape

Nicholas Prugo is accused of harassing a woman and seeking men on the Internet to sexually assault her

One of the members of the “Bling Ring” is once again in legal hot water.

Nicholas Prugo, who was convicted as part of the infamous group that engaged in a burglary spree that reportedly victimized Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan, has been charged with stalking and soliciting a rape, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.

Edward Feinstein has also been charged in the case.

Prugo and Feinstein are accused of scheming to harass West Hollywood esthetician Dawn Daluise and her two adult daughters. During the alleged harassment campaign, which took place from December 2013 to April 2014, the pair allegedly posted an ad on the Internet soliciting men to rape Daluise.

If convicted, Prugo faces up to 14 years in state prison, while Feinstein faces up to seven years in county jail. Prugo’s potential sentence is heavier due to his prior conviction.

Prugo, who was taken into custody Tuesday, will be arraigned on Wednesday. Prosecutors will request that his bail be set at $485,000. Feinstein has been released on $450,000 bail.

Prugo was sentenced to two years in state prison in the Bling Ring case, but was released on probation after a year.
