Pimpin' ain't legal, either.
Back to the legal news in Virginia.
You may have read about the prostitution ring that was reportedly operating out of Tyson's Corner, Virginia. According to REPORTS, elected officials, high tech and pharmaceutical executives, doctors, military officers, government contractors that possess security clearances, professors, attorneys, scientists and accountants frequented this prostitution ring. Prices ranged from $350 to upwards of $600 per hour, which coincidentally is about what lawyers charge to also get you off. But in a different way.
A third man has pled guilty in this federal investigation. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia ANNOUNCED the sentencing of Ye Wang for his role in the prostitution and money laundering conspiracy. Mr. Wang is gonna do a about 3 years and will forfeit a bunch of money.
According to the feds, the defendants in this case laundered $696,706.65 from about January 2021, through May 4, 2022. That's about $60,000 a month. Must have been a huge operation. Reportedly, these guys had private condos and through parties and what not. This is not the typical prostitution case.
Whatever anybody might think about sex work, let's all agree that sex trafficked victims and children should be protected. If you have any information to help recover these people, please contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children HERE or your local law enforcement.
