Brothel owner busted for using five underage girls

Date Posted: 2012-06-29

The owner of a brothel in Naha City’s Matsuyama district is in jail, charged with violating laws regulating adult entertainment businesses by employing five girls ages 14~19.

Taichi Kinjo was taken into custody by Ginowan Police and Okinawa Prefectural Police Youth Division officers. The 33-year-old was charged with having a junior high school student plus four other teens working in the brothel. He’s confessed to charges, as has a 30-year-old staff member, Hikaru Nakajima, at Kinjo’s brothel.

Ginowan Police say the two men set up a single room in the shop, where the sexual services type brothel operation is prohibited by Okinawa Prefectural Regulations. They were arrested after the girls were caught performing sexual services to male visitors at 11:48 p.m. on June 20th. Okinawa Prefectural Police say the two men let other girls work at the shop, and are now investigating both operating conditions and details on how the girls were hired.

Police conducted a house search at the shop at midnight the 20th. When then entered, the five girls were there, but no adult women. The shop was divided into cubicles with single beds separated by dividing panels. Ginowan Police were tipped off about the shop when questioning another girl who had run away from home last December, and was being protected by police.

Officials say they also received an anonymous caller to the National Police Agency tip line telling cops “there is a sex shop that hires junior high school students.” The call led to the investigation that led to Kinjo’s shop. The criminal prosecution centers on violations of the Child Welfare Law.
