A Gwinnett County woman is facing charges of running a brothel from her apartment and forcing women to work as "sex slaves," according to news reports.
WSB-TV reports that Lorys Marisol Padilla, 48, is charged with using the Internet to lure customers to her Norcross-area apartment where five women were forced to work seven days a week as sex slaves.
Citing arrest warrants, the station reported an undercover operation along with Homeland Security led police to the five alleged victims, and Padilla was arrested. She was charged with five felony counts of sex trafficking, five counts of pimping, and charges related to running a prostitution business.
She was being held with no bond at the Gwinnett County Jail, the station reported.
"That is really crazy actually (to) know people would actually force other people to do that," Jasmine Ramos told Channel 2.
