A Stoughton woman offered an undercover state trooper 12 women who would perform sex services during a "private party" at her Brockton spa for $1,720, the Enterprise News reported.
Terry Mussari, 45, pleaded not guilty to charges of deriving support from prostitution during a brief arraignment in Brockton District Court. She was released on $2,000 cash bail, and is scheduled back in court on Jan. 9.
State police and the FBI raided three spas owned by Mussari, including Aria Day Spa in Brockton, Sparkle Day Spa in Canton and Spa Bellissimo in Norwood, following an investigation into prostitution and illicit drug dealing.
Investigators said the spas were offering sex between masseuses and their clients in exchange for cash that was characterized as "tips." Authorities also said employees of the spa were selling narcotics to customers as well as to each other.
Prosecutor Dean Mazzone said Mussari ran "basically a prostitution ring."
Mussari's lawyer, William Sims, said during her arraignment that she owned a home in Stoughton, was married with a daughter and had no prior convictions.
Mussari was the owner of an Easton spa that was also investigated for prostitution in 2003.
On Monday, the sign on the door of Aria Day Spa said it opened at 10 a.m., but the lights were off and the door was locked,
Authorities also arrested Tiffany Burgess, 31, of Raynham on multiple outstanding arrest warrants. She was released on $200 cash bail, but has not been charged in connection with the raid.
