SPOKANE-- Hundreds of law enforcement officers raided eight local spas across Spokane County Tuesday.
One of the prostitutes who allegedly worked with them spoke out regarding the accusations.
Jane Doe, as we’re calling her, worked at Joe Jeans, Oriental Spa and Starlight. She says they were trained to look for cops, and the girls even dressed differently if an undercover officer might be in the building. They would also keep it to nothing but massages.
Investigators got their break when the prostitutes became confidential informants.
Doe says Johns would pay an entry free before being instructed to take a shower, which would ensure the customer is not a cop. Then the customers would get the sexual acts they pay for.
Doe says not all the spa owners were fair with money, but she could sometimes make up to $1,000 a day.
Doe was hooked on drugs as well, all before she decided to turn her life around. She says her family had a dream that she wound up dead, which prompted the change.
In addition to the informants, tax evasion helped build the investigators’ case.
