A top New York lawyer has resigned from her role as assistant Attorney General after she was accused of attending fetish parties as a dominatrix. 


Alisha Smith worked as a top lawyer in the city that doesn't sleep. But nor did she, it would seem, and she would appear under her alter ego Alisha Spark, UK legal gossip site reports.

The New York Post reveals of the lawyer's activities: "She'll beat you. She'll bite you. And she can get you locked up for 15 to life."


Smith quit her $78,825-a-year job battling securities fraud for the state Attorney General's Office after being suspended without pay last month when her bosses learned about her frisky after-hours activities.

Smith's lawyer said of a photograph printed in The Post of Smith in black spandex: "It's very fashionable for your women to wear latex." The lawyer apparently confused spandex with a more kinky material, the newspaper reports. 


Allred added: "Marc Jacobs has shown latex on the runway for fall and winter 2011. Katy Perry also wore it."


Smith herself has expressed anger at the A-G department's treatment of her. 


“All of [the AG’s] actions towards me have been extremely disturbing because I have never accepted any money or payment from any outside source for anything while I have been employed by the New York Attorney General’s Office,’’ Smith said.
