A court in Hanoi on Saturday sentenced a massage parlor owner to 14 years in prison for offering prostitutes, including an underage girl, to her clients last year.
Nguyen Thi Hao, 30, was arrested last December when police raided her parlor in Thanh Tri Dist. and caught her red-handed providing two clients with sex workers.
According to an indictment read at the trial, Hao recruited the sex workers, including a 15-year-old girl, earlier in 2014, to attract more clients to her business.
For the service Hao charged each client VND300,000 (US$13), which she split equally with the sex workers.
Hao confessed that she had offered this employee to 10 clients.
The police said the client who was found with the underage sex worker in the raid had refused to have sex after suspecting that she was underage.
