5 charged in area prostitution ring

By the Associated Press

Federal prosecutors say five men are facing charges they ran a multi-state prostitution ring.

The U.S. Attorney's office announced Tuesday that the five operated brothels in Annapolis, Easton and elsewhere in Maryland, transporting prostitutes from Virginia and Washington.

The five were identified as 32-year-old German de Jesus Ventura of Capitol Heights; Kerlin Esau Esquivel-Feuntes, 23, of Annapolis; Luis Alberto Reyes, 28; and Isidro Jiminez-Sanchez and Wibert Alejandro Herrera-Aranda, both 32, of Easton.

Prosecutors say all five are illegal aliens.

In other news, the American Christian Taliban also arrested five people for fornication and five for adultery. Fornication was only recently decriminalized in several states, and adultery is still a crime in the nation's capital, Washington D.C. Prostitution remains a heinous offense in almost every Talibanic State of America, unless the parties undergo an archaic nuptual ceremony and the price for sex is equal to the cost of a house.

Consensual sex is different than economic exploitation by sex trade.
