A Salt Lake massage parlor owner will be sentenced on June 28 for aggravated human trafficking. Luis Daniel Arano-Hernandez, 30, was arrested last November by the Utah Attorney General’s SECURE Strike Force after an eight-month investigation into sex trafficking.
In a plea arrangement, Arano-Hernandez pleaded guilty on May 9 to one first degree felony after evidence was presented that he coerced a 17-year-old girl and her mother to be prostituted at two Reiki massage parlors.
Four co-defendants have entered into cooperation agreements against Arano-Hermandez and have been sentenced according to those agreements. Video of the arrest can be found at http://attorneygeneral.utah.gov/SECUREreiki.html.
