Tiger WoodsTiger Woods could face prostitution charges if he paid for sex in New York, an attorney has said.

Former madam Michelle Braun told the New York Post that the married billionaire golfer shelled out more than 60,000 dollars between 2006 and 2007 for high-priced escorts.

New York City-based attorney Tom Kenniff said the 33-year-old sportsman could land in serious legal trouble if Braun's allegations were true and may face up to a year in jail if convicted.

"He could be charged with patronising a prostitute, a misdemeanor in New York," Fox News quoted Kennif as saying.

"Depending on the statute of limitations, if there are witnesses swearing out statements, and there is a money trail that can be corroborated, it's a reasonable likelihood" he added.

Woods has decided to take an "indefinite break" from professional golf after admitting infidelity.
