3 women arrested for alleged prostitution at Seymour spa


SEYMOUR (WATE) - Three women were arrested Monday for allegedly running a prostitution business out of a Seymour spa.

Yuan Hong Hua, 47, Cui Ying, 40, and Bai Jin Shum, 55 are all charged with promoting prostitution and impersonation of a licensed professional. A male patron, Ricky Wilcox, 57, of Clarksville, was also charged with patronizing prostitution.

Sevier County Sheriff Ron Seals says the arrests were made Monday after an undercover operation at Royal Spa, 10520 Chapman Highway. Officers raided the business after undercover officers discovered the women were charging patrons for sexual acts and also did not possess a valid massage therapist license.

All the suspects were arraigned before a magistrate and are awaiting a bond hearing. A preliminary hearing will be held at a later date.
