3 people accused of operating brothel sent to prison

Posted: Updated:

Prosecutors say three people who lured women to work in a brothel in Gwinnett County have been sentenced to federal prison.

Court records show Xiaohong Huang, Chan Kong Chow and Biyun Gong were sentenced Friday. Huang and Gong are from China. Chow is from Malaysia.

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that Huang operated a brothel at an apartment complex in Doraville from December 2005 through May 2017. Chow and Gong managed the day-to-day operations.

Prosecutors say the three lured women of Asian descent from across the U.S. to work as prostitutes.

They pleaded guilty in July to conspiring to operate an interstate prostitution scheme involving money laundering.

Huang was sentenced to nearly three years. Chow got almost two years, and Gong got one year and three months.
