Plea deal on table for woman in Fuji probe
Suk Young Yu is charged with felony pimping and is free on $10,000 bond.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Dan Rubinstein on Tuesday said a plea deal has been extended to a woman suspected of helping run an alleged prostitution business on Horizon Drive.
Suk Young Yu, 52, could sign off on the agreement at a preliminary hearing scheduled for early September.
Yu, who has been described by prosecutors as a cooperating witness in the investigation of Fuji Oriental Massage Therapy, 762 Horizon Drive, didn’t appear at her hearing Tuesday morning per an agreement struck between District Judge Valerie Robison and Yu’s Denver attorney, J.Y. Kang.
Yu is charged with a single count of felony pimping and is free on $10,000 bond.
Authorities alleged Yu worked for Nan O’Reilly, 58, the owner of Fuji Massage.
Prosecutors also claim O’Reilly had no known sources of income other than her business, which turned out tens of thousands of dollars in prostitution-related profits used by O’Reilly to pay taxes on her business, among other expenses. O’Reilly has owned the massage parlor for 14 years.
During a span of two years, starting in 2006, O’Reilly made deposits totaling $530,000 to a business bank account, according to federal court records in the case.
Authorities have alleged various sex acts were offered at Fuji Massage for prices ranging from $100 to $300.
