On Feb. 19, Jupiter authorities arrested Hua Zhang, owner of Orchids of Asia Day Spa, and charged her with sex trafficking.  Zhang is facing charges of operating a house of prostitution, deriving support from prostitution, racketeering and money laundering. Unfortunately, this is only the beginning of the investigation.

According to authorities, Zhang was forcing her female employees into prostitution, taking away their passports. Most of the women involved came to America from China under the notion they would have a legitimate job working for the day spa. Instead, they were allegedly forced into sex trade, most of them sleeping and eating at the day spas.

Police originally started investigating in Nov. 2018, noticing that only male clients were walking in and out of the business. They later discovered the names of the victims in the business’s dumpster.

“Local investigators were preparing to seize 2 to 3 million in assets from the business in question,” Sheriff William Snyder said in a statement.

Ruimei Li and Lixia Zhu were connected to the crimes in Jupiter and arrested in Martin County the same day. The investigation revealed there is a sex trafficking ring from Jupiter to Stuart including multiple spas.

Hundreds of men in South Fla. have been arrested, and another list of men who were alleged regular patrons of the day spa is set to be released. Robert Kraft, owner and Chief Executive Officer of the New England Patriots, was among the names already published.

The NFL put out a statement Feb. 25 regarding the billionaire: “Our Personal Conduct Policy applies equally to everyone in the NFL. We will handle this allegation in the same way we would handle any issue under the Policy. We are seeking a full understanding of the facts, while ensuring that we do not interfere with an ongoing law enforcement investigation. We will take appropriate action as warranted based on the facts.”
