12/12/07 -- Various Counties in New York State - Federal wiretaps have identified a judge, a police captain, an Immigration officer and a sheriff's deputy among those who may have been clients of a prostitution ring.
On Monday, FBI raids closed four of the businesses in Erie and Niagra County. The U.S. Attorney's office says nine young Asian women were smuggled into the country, and then forced to work as prostitutes. According to the FBI, most of the activity with the high-profile clientele took place at a massage parlor in Wheatfield. Perhaps the most troubling information contained in the complaint is based on a wiretap from August. It involves an unnamed sheriff's deputy, and followed a police raid of massage parlors in Buffalo.
