Proceedings postponed in Fuji Massage case
A Grand Junction woman accused of using her local massage parlor for prostitution waived her right Friday to have a preliminary hearing within 30 days.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Dan Rubinstein said the hearing for 58-year-old Nan O’Reilly, owner of Fuji Oriental Massage, 762 Horizon Drive, was postponed because of an abundance of discovery in the case and because of a pending civil, forfeiture case.
O’Reilly was arrested in late November on numerous charges, including racketeering and pimping, after a 10-month police investigation. Authorities allege the longtime local massage parlor offered a host of prostitution services that yielded tens of thousands of dollars in profits.
The money was used to pay taxes on several properties O’Reilly owned, including Fuji Oriental Massage, authorities claim.
O’Reilly is scheduled to appear in court next on Oct. 6.
