SUMMARY:From 2000 to 2005, Agni Lisa Brown and her daughter, Maria Antonietta Mourizaki employed illegal immigrant females in a Springfield, VA brothel located in a commercial park. The brothel was listed as an accupressure center, "American Spa". Although Defendants were not directly involved in bringing the employed women into the U.S., they did plead guilty to knowingly employing women that they knew had been trafficked for the sex trade. Many women lived at the brothel. Three victims have been named, and there are unknown others. Defendant's involvement was discovered by an undercover agent posing as a prostitute at the brothell. Brown was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment.
