Woman found guilty of prostituting daughter

Date Posted: 2002-10-12

The Okinawa City Branch of the Naha District Court found a woman and her brother guilty for enticing the woman’s 18-year-old daughter to work as a prostitute. The girl had worked as a prostitute in Ginowan City for more than a year starting 2001.

According to court documents the 54-year-old woman had fallen heavily in debt due to her gambling habit. She then contacted her 46-year-old younger brother who is a member of Okinawa Gyokuryu-kai gangster group, and asked him to introduce her daughter to a place where she could work as a prostitute. He then arranged the girl to work in an establishment in Ginowan City. The girl had reportedly worked as a bar hostess since she was 14 years old.

In handing down a 1.5-year prison sentence, the presiding judge said that “What you have done is unspeakable, and for that your deserve a prison sentence.” However, as the woman showed deep remorse, the judge suspended the sentence and sent her to three years on probation.

The brother was sentenced to one-year prison term that he has to serve in full as he had a previous criminal record.
