2013 0521 justice court bench

Two women from Queens charged in November in the alleged operation of an unlicensed massage parlor in Wading River have reached a plea deal for the dismissal of all charges.

Fu Nana, 37, and Yan Weng, 40, received adjournments in contemplation of dismissal May 20 in Riverhead Justice Court.

Nana and Wang were both charged by Riverhead Town Police with unauthorized practice of a profession on November 5, 2018. Nana was additionally charged with prostitution.

An adjournment in contemplation of dismissal allows for the dismissal of criminal charges after the conclusion of an adjournment period if the defendant is not arrested again during the adjournment period. The adjournment period usually runs from six months to one year.

Riverhead police commenced an investigation into the premises at 6302 Route 25A, Suite B3 in Wading River in response to community complaints, according to a police press release issued after the arrests.

Both women were represented by attorney Mingli Chen of Flushing, Queens.

Editor’s note: A criminal charge is an accusation. A person charged with a crime is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
