Pizza Shop Owner Accused of Trying to Recruit Former Worker for Prostitution

The owner of a popular pizza place in the western suburbs of Boston is out on bail after being arraigned for allegedly trying to get a woman who used to work at the shop to have sex with married men in return for money.

According to an article on the WCVB site, police have charged Michael Giakoumakis of Liberty Pizza in Wayland of attempting to recruit a former worker of the Main Street pizzeria for prostitution, with Lincoln police working with Wayland police on the arrest of the Framingham native. Giakoumakis is free on $500 case bail following his district court arraignment earlier this week.

CBS Boston mentions that Liberty Pizza is a "fixture" in the town, and that Lincoln police were called in to help because a number of police officers in Wayland eat at the pizza spot and know the owners.

Giakoumakis is scheduled to be back in court March 10 to face the charges against him.

The address for Liberty Pizza is 116 Main Street, Wayland, MA, 01778.
