|FBI New York December 13, 2010|
On November 17, 2010, more than 20 defendants were charged for their alleged involvement in a multi-state, illegal sex trafficking and prostitution network. Two of the defendants were also charged with money laundering, and two others were charged with conspiring to distribute cocaine. The FBI is searching for three fugitives in this investigation and seeks the public’s assistance.
Chung Hsueh Li, Hyun-H Lee, and Hae-Kyung Lee are wanted by the FBI for their alleged involvement in a sex trafficking conspiracy. All three fugitives are alleged to have been involved in a sex trafficking conspiracy within the New York area, as well as Texas, North Carolina, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The law enforcement investigation began in October of 2009 and followed with federal arrest warrants being issued on November 9, 2010 by the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.
“Last month, we arrested 15 people in connection to this case. We will not stop until everyone has been captured; the FBI will continue to seek out individuals involved in all types of criminal activity. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of these fugitives is requested to call the FBI at (212) 384-1000 or their local police,” said Special Agent in Charge Diego Rodriguez.
