The accused, a 45-year-old woman, is believed to have masterminded the operation, managing twelve apartments turned into brothels across Hesse and Baden-Württemberg. She purportedly avoided tax payments by not registering her employees and hiding her earnings. The prosecution alleges tax evasion totaling more than 1.19 million euros, with social security funds reportedly losing over 1.3 million euros.

The indictment also implicates a 60-year-old man from Rüsselsheim, accused of being the gang’s driver. Additionally, a 45-year-old Chinese woman from Ulm faces charges, allegedly responsible for communication between prostitutes and clients.

Authorities began investigating the gang in April 2022, culminating in raids on brothel premises and the arrest of the two women in the summer of 2023. The brothels were discovered in various cities, including Baden-Baden, Offenbach am Main, Rüsselsheim, Schweinfurt, Stuttgart, and Wetzlar, as well as in several districts across the region.
