Share this post

Authorities say a Chicago woman extradited from Hong Kong is accused of operating a prostitution ring out of three massage parlors in Lake County, Indiana. United States Attorney David Capp announced that 55-year-old Rita Law has been charged in a sealed complaint filed on October 17, 2013, now unsealed, with transporting an individual for the purposes of prostitution. The US Attorney's Office in Hammond says Law was arrested on October 18, 2013 after deplaning from a Cathay Pacific airline flight in Hong Kong. Homeland Security Investigations' Hong Kong office coordinated with the Hong Kong Department of Justice and the Hong Kong Police Force to both arrest and extradite Law back to the United States to face the charge in the complaint. This charge was filed as the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations Hong Kong.
