Women Accused Of Prostitution At Belgrade Spas

Posted: Updated:

BELGRADE - After a police undercover investigation, three women accused of prostitution in Belgrade have been arrested after being accused of prostitution at the Beijing spa and VIP spa.

On Tuesday, each of the three women appeared in Gallatin County Justice court on video with a translator by their side.

51-year-old, Jihong Yu, 52-year-old Yu-Sun Gasperi and 70-year-old Ok Nan Tenette are all charged with promoting prostitution, which is a felony.

According to court documents, Belgrade Police received a warrant at the beginning of the month allowing them to conduct an undercover investigation at the Beijing spa and the VIP spa.

On July 26th Belgrade Police recorded the conversations and interactions between the man and the employees at the spa.

Police returned again on Monday, both Tenette and Gasperi massaged the man working for police. Document say tenette then asked the man if he wanted sexual acts done in exchange for money.

During the undercover investigation, officers were monitoring by using an audio transmitter device.

Public defenders said they believe Gasperi should not be charged because she did not offer any sexual gestures to the men involved in the investigation.

Prosecutors say there was evidence in the business indicating that both Tenette and Gasperi were living at the VIP spa, which they say means she knows what was going in there and she should be charged as well.

"Clearly from this affidavit of probable cause that there is probable cause to believe that she is residing within the prostitution business," said James Greenbaum, Gallatin County Deputy Attorney.

If convicted all three woman could face up to 10 years in jails and be fined up to $50,000.

Judge Bryan Adams set bail for each woman in the amount of $50,000.
