Fuji figure may make plea deal

A woman whom authorities believe ran day-to-day tasks at an alleged Horizon Drive prostitution business could see her case resolved next month, attorneys said Thursday.

Suk Young Yu, 52, who was described by a prosecutor Thursday as a “cooperative witness” in
the investigation of Fuji Oriental Massage, 762 Horizon Drive, is now scheduled to return to court June 30.

Yu appeared free on bond Thursday in District Judge Valerie Robison’s courtroom for her first appearance since her initial advisement in December. Yu’s June 30 return date comes four days after a scheduled preliminary hearing for her former boss, 58-year-old Nan O’Reilly.

“The fate of (Yu’s) case hinges on what happens with O’Reilly,” Deputy District Attorney Chris Nerbonne told the judge.

Yu is charged with a single count of pimping and is free on $10,000 bond.

O’Reilly, meanwhile, is free on $250,000 bond and faces felony charges of racketeering, pimping, filing a false tax return, in addition to misdemeanor charges of keeping a place of prostitution, pandering and promoting sexual immorality.

O’Reilly owned the Horizon Drive business for 14 years, and authorities allege she used tens of thousands of dollars worth of prostitution-related profits to pay taxes on her business, among other expenses.
