Media Contact for Quincy Man Indicted for Trafficking Multiple Women for Sex at Allston Brothel
Boston — A Quincy man has been indicted for trafficking multiple women for sex at a residential brothel in Allston, Attorney General Maura Healey announced today.
Geekin Ng, age 59, of Quincy, was indicted by a Statewide Grand Jury today on one count each of Trafficking Persons for Sexual Servitude, Deriving Support from Prostitution, Maintaining a House of Prostitution, Keeping a House of Ill Fame, and Money Laundering. He will be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court at a later date.
Ng was arrested in June in Allston by Massachusetts State Police assigned to the AG’s Office and the Boston Police Department’s Human Trafficking and Special Investigation Units and District 14. His arrest was the result of a joint investigation by Massachusetts State Police assigned to the AG’s Office and the Boston Police Department.
During the course of the investigation, authorities developed evidence indicating that Ng ran a residential brothel in Allston, which was set up as a front for human trafficking.
At this location, Ng allegedly offered sexual activity between women and buyers in exchange for a fee. He delivered food and other supplies and advertised sexual services to buyers. Ng allegedly received the majority of the profits from these sexual encounters and used the money to perpetuate the criminal enterprise.
AG Healey’s Victim Services Division is working with victim service organizations to ensure victims have the assistance and services they need.
These charges are allegations, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
AG Healey has a dedicated Human Trafficking Division that focuses on policy, prevention and prosecution and includes a team of specialized prosecutors, victim advocates and Massachusetts State Police troopers who handle high impact, multi-jurisdictional human trafficking investigations and prosecutions across the state. Through the Human Trafficking Division, the AG’s Office has charged more than 40 individuals in connection with human trafficking since the law was passed.
As part of her commitment to reduce the demand for illegal sex and raise awareness about sex trafficking, AG Healey joined Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the business community in May to announce that 23 businesses adopted zero-tolerance policies on sex buying for their workplaces as part of a new initiative called Employers Against Sex Trafficking (EAST).
This case is being prosecuted by Deputy Chief of the AG’s Human Trafficking Division Jennifer Snook and Assistant Attorney General Thomas Caldwell, with assistance from Victim Witness Advocates Rebecca Quigley and Megan Murphy and Financial Investigator Kit Metoyer. The investigation was handled by the Massachusetts State Police assigned to the AG’s Office, the AG’s Digital Evidence Lab, and the Boston Police Department’s Human Trafficking and Special Investigation Units and District 14.
