According to court documents, Moonseop Kim posted an advertisement on the Internet offering Korean female escort services in September 2012. Undercover officers with the Biloxi police responded to the ad and conducted a sting operation which resulted in the arrest of the 54-year-old Kim and a Korean female.

ICE investigators subsequently discovered Kim was connected to a multi-state prostitution ring operating out of Atlantic City, N.J., and that Kim and the female had both overstayed their visas and were illegally in the country.

“Criminals who sexually exploit illegal aliens for financial gain often use intimidation or force to threaten these vulnerable women into compliance,” said ICE’s New Orleans Special Agent in Charge Raymond R. Parmer Jr.
