BISMARCK, N.D. — A woman accused of prostitution in the North Dakota oil patch says she will plead guilty in federal court.
Authorities say Thuy Hoang worked at prostitution parlors in Minot, Dickinson and Williston. She’s charged with conspiracy.
The brothels allegedly were operated by Loc Tran and Trina Nguyen (wihn). They are scheduled for trial in June on racketeering and extortion charges.
Authorities say Tran and Nguyen lured women from California to work as prostitutes in western North Dakota between 2012 and 2014.
Hoang’s attorney could not be reached for comment.
