NEW YORK — A sex trafficking ring that spanned four states and included 20 brothels masquerading as massage parlors was shut down by authorities.

According to reports, the New York Asian Organized Crime Task Force, made up of FBI and New York police investigators arrested 22 people for running the ring that involved Korean prostitutes in New York, Texas, North Carolina and Pennsylvania over the past year.

"Trafficking in human flesh and sexually exploiting women for financial gain is all too common and simply will not be tolerated," Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.

New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said, "It takes a special depravity to take women from their home 6,880 miles away and exploit them here."

The ringleaders were charged with transporting individuals across state lines for the purpose of illegal sexual activity that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison on conviction.
