Alleged Trebek Prostitute -- Alex Was NOT My John

The prostitute who was arrested for burglary after Alex Trebek chased her down a hotel hallway told police -- she was in the hotel to meet a John, but it was NOT Alex.

TMZ spoke with the prostitute's lawyer, Mark Jacobs, who tells us Lucinda Moyers just happened to be on the same floor where Alex was fast asleep with his wife.  Jacobs says there's no proof Lucinda entered Alex's room and stole anything, but he did not explain why Alex would have chased her down the hallway, injuring his Achilles tendon.

Jacobs is insistent -- Alex is "an innocent victim."
