East Rockaway, NY (WABC/CNN) - The woman dubbed the "hot dog hooker" got out of a New York City area jail Tuesday after being arrested for prostitution.

Police say Cathy Scalia operates a hot dog truck in Baldwin, New York and has been offering a little something extra on the side, selling herself for sex.

Scalia denies it.

"I pleaded guilty to stripper, a stripper. Not prostitution. Prostitution is sex. Listen, I'm Sister Theresa over here okay. Showing you cleavage is indecent exposure. Prostitution is sex. Sexual acts," said Scalia.

After five days in jail, Scalia emerged unapologetic, unrepentant and unwilling to change her chosen profession: selling hot dogs and lap dances.

A judge has ordered her to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
