A woman who owned and managed three "spas" that were a front for prostitution was sentenced today in Omaha to three years and one month in prison, according to the FBI
Kimberly A. Bivens, age 46, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to use facilities in interstate commerce to promote a business enterprise involving prostitution from 2009 to 2011, federal officials state.
Bivens placed advertisements for each of the three spas on the Internet.
The majority of customers received sex acts from the workers, rather than legitimate spa services, in exchange for money. Some customers traveled to the spas from Iowa and from other states to obtain sex for money, state officials.
During the time when Bivens managed or owned these three spa locations, there were more than 20 workers performing sex acts, according to federal authorities.
