According to U.S. District Court documents, on Sep. 30, 2008, Hannah Chong, a U.S. citizen, was arrested during the execution of three federal search warrants.
Chong was harboring two illegal aliens at Coral Spa, located in West Palm Beach. She sexually exploited these females for commercial advantage by allowing them to commit acts of prostitution at Coral Spa.
Chong also received a salary derived in whole or in part from work and activities performed by the illegal aliens. She then deposited the funds into her own bank account knowing that they represented the proceeds of her harboring activities.
U.S. Attorney R. Alexander Acosta commended the investigative work of all of the investigative agencies involved. This investigation was led by ICE and conducted jointly with the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney John McMillan.
