Christina Kim charged with running a prostitution based massage parlor, police say

BOCA RATON, Fla. - A woman has been arrested in connection with a raid more than six years ago.

An investigation by Boca Raton police in 2007 led to the closure of the Essence Spa at 289 E. Palmetto Park Road.

Police at the time had conducted surveillance at the massage parlor and concluded that it was being used for prostitution.

Police arrested 25 men and charged them with solicitation.

Two women were also arrested at the time and charged with prostitution.

On Monday police arrested Christina Kim of New York and charged her with running Essence Spa.

Investigators say that business records showed that Kim was the owner of the massage parlor when prostitution-related activities occurred there.

Kim was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and then released on bond.

Kim is facing charges of money laundering, living off of the earnings of prostitution and permitting unlicensed people to practice massage.
