Alleged prostitution case moves to circuit court
by CHRIS GRAYA case involving alleged prostitution operations at a Washington Township spa will head to the circuit court level.
Observer Staff Writer
Defendants Daniel Robin of Flint, Kyung Suk Moore and Oksun Hughes all agreed to waive their rights to a preliminary exam on May 20 and have their cases head to the Macomb County Circuit Court.
The trio is charged with keeping a house of prostitution, a five-year felony, and using a computer to commit a crime, a seven-year felony. Moore and Hughes face additional charges of prostitution/accosting and soliciting, a 93-day misdemeanor.
All three defendants stood before Judge Denis LeDuc at the 42-1 District Court in Romeo to agree to their waivers. Their next court date was set for 1:30 p.m. on June 2.
Suspicious activities going on at the spa, formerly located on Van Dyke and 27 Mile Road, were reported to Washington Township officials by a resident following a visit.
The Macomb County Sheriff's Special Enforcement Team (SET) raided the spa in February following a month-long undercover investigation.
The preliminary exam was originally scheduled for April 17 but was postponed. On March 18 Robin's attorney, Norbert Leonard, asked for additional time so that further discovery could take place.
