2 arrested in prostitution sting at massage parlor

A prostitution sting at a Hall County massage parlor resulted in two arrests, according to the sheriff’s office.

Mi Young Jeon, 50, and Misook Kim, 46, both of Buford, were charged with keeping a place of prostitution, Hall County sheriff’s Lt. Don Scalia said Thursday in a news release. Kim also faces charges of masturbation for hire and massage without license.

According to Scalia, several complaints about illegal activity at a Gainesville massage parlor in the 100 block of John Morrow Parkway prompted Wednesday’s sting.

Jeon was released Wednesday from the Hall County jail on $1,000 bond. Kim was released on $4,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
