MASON CITY — A worker at a Mason City massage business has been charged with prostitution.
Suling Lu, 49, formerly of Mason City and now a resident of Iowa City, was arrested on that charge, an aggravated misdemeanor, by the Mason City Police Department on Feb. 24 during an investigation of her place of employment, Asian Body Work, 546 E. State St.
Her sentencing is set for April 18.
The Cerro Gordo County Attorney’s Office has agreed to recommend a deferred judgment for Lu, according to the written guilty plea.
Police say they investigated Asian Body Work after receiving complaints about people being able to pay for sex acts at the business. Asian Body Work is now closed.
