Kansas massage parlor worker faces sentencing

KSAL StaffApril 7, 2014

A former Wichita massage parlor worker ensnared in a sex trafficking scheme faces sentencing.

Xiuqing Tian (shoo-ching tee-AHN’) of Framingham, Mass., has a hearing Monday in federal court in Wichita. She pleaded guilty in November to helping induce an immigrant to reside unlawfully in the United States.

In her plea deal, she admitted moving to Wichita in 2009 to work for co-defendants Gary Kidgell and Yan Zhang. The document alleges they encouraged her to perform sex acts for patrons of two massage parlors where she worked.

Tian has also admitted helping Kidgell recruit other Chinese women by providing translation services and conducting interviews.

Tian has agreed to testify against her two former employers, who are awaiting trial.

No new trial date has been set for them.
