New York, June 30 (ANI): A woman who stays in a million-dollar mansion in Queens, New York, has been arrested for allegedly terrorizing sex slaves.
Jin Hua Cui, 44, had two Long Island locations, which were disguised as nail salons, but actually were the places where she had managed to run prostitution, revealed authorities.
Inside a storefront in Huntington Station, advertised as a "Stimulus Plan" on the front window, she offered sex acts for prices ranging from 60 dollars up to 120 dollars.
Suffolk DA Tom Spota said, Cui, of Flushing, lived a life of luxury in her cash-filled home at the expense of her victims.
She is now facing up to 25 years behind bars if convicted.
PIO Spota told that Cui admitted to investigators that she got into the business of prostitution to make a lot of money.
"I think that you can see, looking at the photograph of her house that, while she was a success, her success came at a price to the women that she enslaved," the New York Post quoted Spota as saying.
Cui forced eight women into a life of prostitution after they answered employment ads in a Korean language newspaper in Flushing offering fake nail salon attendant jobs, explained Spota.
He added: "When the women would respond, thinking they were going to be working at a nail salon, she then forced them into prostitution with threats of violence, intimidation and embarrassment."
It has emerged that Cui along with her driver, Sangyel Kuen, 53, of Flushing, used to bring them to either their Huntington Station or a Hicksville location, said Spota.
Inside Cui's Tudor-style home, investigators discovered several wallets stuffed with 20,000 dollars in cash and more than 1,000 condoms, massage oils, lingerie and other items were also seized in raids on the places of alleged prostitution.
Also arrested on June 9 was Kuen, who has already pleaded guilty and implicated Cui, said Spota.
Cui was arraigned on the charges and is being held in lieu of 10,000 dollars cash bail. (ANI)
