A Prostitution Ring, In Bulk

Maryland has this reputation as one of the sleepier members of the mid-Atlantic region, but once in a while a news story comes along to alter that perspective.

Rosibel Aparicio Jandres, age 45, of Germantown, Maryland, was sentenced today to 24 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release for conspiracy to transport hundreds of prostitutes to Montgomery and Prince George's counties, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein. U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams, Jr. also ordered that Jandres forfeit $20,000 in proceeds from the sale of 1207 Kirklynn Avenue in Takoma Park; the residence located at 19325 Frederick Road, Germantown, Maryland; and $8,185 in cash seized on November 16, 2005.

According to the plea agreement presented to the court, from April 2003 to November 16, 2005 Rosibel Aparicio Jandres conspired with her husband, Manuel Jandres, her sister Olinda Aparicio and Olinda's daughters, Elsy Aparicio and Dorinalda Aparicio a/k/a "Dorinalda Aparicio Gonzalez," and son Eliazor Aparicio and Jair Francis, to transport hundreds of women from New York and New Jersey to Maryland and employ them as prostitutes.
