DA: Fuji johns unlikely to be charged

Authorities say their probe of Fuji Oriental Massage Therapy and other massage parlors across the valley is targeting alleged pimps and the proceeds from selling sex, reducing the likelihood that clients who solicited those businesses will be arrested.

“The focus of this investigation is racketeering,” Mesa County Chief Deputy District Attorney Dan Rubinstein said Wednesday.

A criminal complaint filed Tuesday against 58-year-old Fuji Massage owner Nan O’Reilly alleged at least 45 people from 16 states charged roughly $15,000 to their Discover credit cards for alleged prostitution services. The johns were identified only by their first and last initials and their hometowns.

“We’re trying to accomplish something with the least amount of damage to families,” Rubinstein said of limiting the identification of solicitors.
