Miami 3/2/10 Charges of racketeering, money laundering and prostitution have been filed against four people accused of running seven South Florida massage parlors that Miami Dade police said provided "happy endings"
Michael Angelini who police said is the ringleader along with Dereck Greenberg, Katherine Area, Michelle Bonilla and Six massage employees were all arrested and charged this week. Police said they all worked together to make this illegal massage parlor ring possible.
"During the investigation, we revealed that the girls that were working inside were giving happy endings which means they were conducting sexual acts in the massage parlors" said Nicole Donnelly of the Miami Dade police department.
Police said Angelini, who lives in South Beach did this for about twelve years and made $30,000 to $40,000 per month.
Police said Angelini used fraudulent information to get licensed and then his staff would teach new employees how to perform a sexual favor while trying to make it appear to be part of a body scrub.
Six parlors in Miami Dade and one in Broward have been shut down.
