 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.

NEBRASKA  -- A 50-year-old man was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison for producing child pornography, federal prosecutors announced today.

Douglas Suing, of Omaha, was arrested in Navajo County, Arizona on Jan. 12, 2011 as he was driving back to Nebraska, say federal authorities. A search of the hard drive found in Suing's vehicle revealed over 9,000 videos of child pornography, federal authorities stated.

Authorities identified a child engaged in sexually explicit in a series of short videos and images produced by Suing's camera as a 12-year-old living in Omaha.

In addition to the images of the 12-year-old produced by Suing, there were more than 200 videos of child pornography to include infants and prepubescent children engaged in acts of sexual penetration and bondage, federal prosecutors stated.

This matter was investigated by the Omaha FBI's Cyber Crime Task Force.

Project Safe Childhood is a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation, say federal  authorities.
