Liao Xiuhua, charged with promoting prostitution and prostitution in Boardman

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A 59-year-old woman from China has been indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury on promoting prostitution and prostitution charges.

The charges stem from a raid of Tuina Studio Spa in Boardman last month. Police said a customer told officers that Liao Xiuhua had performed a sex act on him for $100.

Xiuhua did not speak English but told an interpreter that she saw an advertisement online for a worker at the spa and flew to the United States to take the job. She said she didn’t know who her boss was and denied meeting anyone.

Police said clothing and groceries were found in the business and it appeared that someone was living there..

The landlord was notified about the situation and denied any knowledge of criminal activity.
