Prostitution suspects face trial in Union County Court

LEWISBURG — LEWISBURG — Two Korean women charged with prostitution in Union County waived their rights to a preliminary hearing on Thursday and will face formal arraignment before a judge Nov. 4.

Hyang Wood, 65, and Lee Young Bun, 48, both of Flushing, N.Y., appeared before District Judge Leo Armbruster on misdemeanor charges of prostitution and conspiracy.

Both women are free on bail of $15,000 each since their Aug. 12 arrest by undercover state troopers. The women appeared with their attorney Mark Schaffer, of Philadelphia.

According to court documents, an undercover state police trooper entered the Four Seasons Spa near Lewisburg on Aug. 12 and allegedly was greeted by Wood. She led him to a room and left.

Bun then entered, massaged the trooper then allegedly asked if he wanted her to perform sexual acts on him. The trooper told her he would need more money and began to dress, the affidavit stated.

As the trooper continued dressing, the other trooper rang the door bell and announced “state police,” arresting Wood and Bun.

It’s not clear whether the Four Seasons Spa remains open. On Thursday, a woman who said her name is “Bun” answered a call to the spa on Silvermoon Lane. She said she was not the same woman named Bun who appeared in court earlier in the day.

When asked whether the spa is still open, the woman said she had no idea and advised calling back the next day to a supervisor.

This is the second arrest in roughly 18 months at the Kelly Township business. In May 2012, state police broke up a prostitution ring at the spa and arrested two Korean women for providing sex for money. In August 2012, both pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution and received probation. A third woman involved was found to be an illegal immigrant and was deported after the arrest.

The state police had closed down the Four Seasons Spa for similar offenses in 2010.
