Alleged leader of prostitution ring returned to Korea
A Korean national wanted in her native country for operating a Los Angeles-based prostitution ring was recently flown to South Korea and turned over to law enforcement authorities.
The suspect, Eun Suk Sun, 37, was escorted by officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on the flight from Los Angeles to South Korea. Sun is charged by authorities in South Korea in a warrant issued in May 2011 with operating a prostitution business that employed other Korean women. Authorities in Seoul are prosecuting the case because it involved other Korean nationals. According to the warrant, Sun hired the women in November 2010 to work as prostitutes in Koreatown. The defendant was arrested in Los Angeles on Jan. 17 for immigration violations.
