Irvine - Detectives arrest six people in Irvine and three businesses were shut down as a result of a search warrant carried out for an Irvine based prostitution ring.
Police said that the Investigation started on February, when police got a tip regarding a suspicious activity in one of the business.
The business Dexter Co.,was licensed as a medical supply company but the investigators said that it had a "massage parlor-type setup".
Soon Keun Kim, 60 was running the business. The investigators says that it is also possible that she has connections to other Irvine locations. Investigators are suspected about the other two businesses too.
Detectives served a search warrant on three businesses when they arrest Kim from her business place. Police arrested Kim for the charges of Pimping and Pandering. Authorities said that she is being held in lieu of $35,000 bail.
Our Orange County Prostitution Defense Lawyer Michael Guisti explains that Pandering is a serious crime which is to be described under the PC 266i . Pandering is "when you encourage someone to engage in prostitution, and made available to the others for the purpose of prostitution." It is a Felony.
According to our Orange County Pimping Defense Attorney, "Pimping is a violation of Penal Code (PC) 266h and you violate this law when you basically find customers for a prostitute and then collect some or all of the prostitute's pay. You could also violate this law if you collected some or all of a prostitute's pay regardless if you found the customer."
Pimping is a felony and if convicted you face between three to six years in a California state prison, and up to a $10,000 fine, and possible fine of up to $5,000 used to fund counseling centers and programs for child victims of sexual abuse, says California Sex Crime Attorney.
