S.L. massage parlor owner headed to prison for human trafficking
SALT LAKE CITY — A Salt Lake massage parlor owner will serve five years to life in prison for coercing a 17-year-old girl and her mother into prostitution.
The Utah Attorney General’s SECURE Strike Force arrested Luis Daniel Arano-Hernandez, 30, last November after an eight-month investigation into sex trafficking. Prosecutors charged him in 3rd District Court with aggravated human trafficking involving a child.
"I was really tired of being bullied and mentally tortured,” the teenage girl testified at a preliminary hearing. “I was just tired of him controlling me, making me go to work everyday, not having a normal life like other children did."
Prosecutor Gregory Ferbrache said the sentence was appropriate given what happened to the victims.
