A Frederick Maryland lady was sentenced to 15 months in jail for money laundering. Madam Delcid runs a prostitution ring in three brothels in Maryland and Virginia. According to her plea agreement, Adriana Delcid charges $30 per client, and her girls would receive $15, or half of the $30, for each assignment.
One of the crimes Delcid had admitted in the plea was failing to ask for legal working status of some alien prostitutes.
Running a business is never easy. Although Delcid made over $340,000 in the 29 months prior to her arrest in May 2008, she would have to pay rent and utilities at the brothels, pay her mortgage, make the payment on the vehicle used to transport the prostitutes, pay sex workers and brothel managers, purchase supplies, and open two businesses in Florida.
