LAKEWOOD, Wash. – Washington officials say five people involved in a prostitution sting at two Lakewood massage parlors have been sentenced.

The News Tribune reports a Superior Court judge sentenced Jing Su and Yuan Chu, the women in charge of the two massage parlors involved, to time on electronic home monitoring. Jiusheng Jiang, who was accused of being a manager at one of the parlors, was sentenced to credit for time served.

Police busted in Yuan Lin Massage and Yi Lee Massage in August. Detectives entered the businesses posing as clients and say the masseuses offered them sexual services.

Two women accused of offering sexual services received deferred sentences.

The judge dismissed prostitution charges against another woman arrested in the sting who was deported after her arrest.
