A woman who was charged with prostitution in New Holland earlier this year pleaded guilty and was accepted into a diversionary program Friday.
Zhimin Wang, 58, was charged with prostitution and promoting prostitution after an undercover police investigation on Feb. 21 at Angel Spa, 36 W. Main St.
Lancaster County Judge Donald Totaro accepted Wang into the Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition, or ARD, program.
The district attorney’s office agreed under the condition that Wang be placed under supervision for two years and cannot break the law during that time.
She was additionally ordered to complete 45 hours of community service, pay $650 in court fees and agreed to undergo a mental health evaluation.
If Wang does not violate the terms of the ARD, her record will be expunged.
When asked if she had any comment, Wang said no.
Totaro asked Wang if she would do it again, to which she replied “no, I will not."
Wang opened Angel Spa in her name in December 2018, defense attorney Lorraine Hagy said during the hearing.
Another individual worked with Wang at first but left. Wang was the only employee when she was arrested, Hagy said.
Prompted by complaints from residents, New Holland Police and the Lancaster County Drug Task Force conducted an undercover investigation.
An officer scheduled an appointment on Feb. 21. He paid Wang for a message, and then she offered to perform a sex act in exchange for money, according to police.
In March, property owner Scott R. Monger of Monger II LLC filed a complaint against Wang for breach of contract “due to police activity."
Wang was ordered to leave the property by District Judge Jonathan Heisse in April.
