Woman in sex trafficking case released on bond

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A former Wichita massage parlor worker has been released on bond while she awaits sentencing in a sex trafficking case.

Xiuqing Tian of Framingham, Mass., had been jailed since she pleaded guilty in November to helping induce an immigrant to reside unlawfully in the United States.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says a federal judge on Wednesday granted Tian’s request to be released to a halfway house. The judge also ordered her to obtain lawful employment.

Tian has agreed to testify against her two former employers, who are awaiting trial.

In her plea deal, she admitted moving to Wichita to work for the pair and said they encouraged her to perform sex acts for patrons of two massage parlors where she worked.
