Spa worker takes prostitution deal
January 07, 2015, 05:00 AM

A Redwood City spa employee accused of propositioning an undercover detective during a massage pleaded no contest to misdemeanor prostitution and received no jail time in return for her testifying against the owner.

Winnie Tse, 45, changed her plea the day of trial and was immediately given 18 months court probation. She was also ordered back Jan. 13 to testify at the preliminary hearing of Ting Sun, the owner of two Redwood City spas including Aurora Spa on Broadway where the detective went undercover in July.

Sun, 28, is charged with three counts of pimping and two counts of keeping a house of prostitution, prosecutors said Thursday. She was arrested Aug. 8 at the New Spa at 636 El Camino Real after an undercover police officer went there and was offered prostitution.

Another spa employee, Li Xheng, 38, who worked at the New Spa, was also arrested. She was cited for misdemeanor prostitution and has a jury trial Feb. 17.
