The Harris County Attorney is aggressive when it comes to shutting down questionable spas and massage parlors in our community.
County Attorney Vince Ryan has filed six civil lawsuits against businesses he calls public nuisances.
Those businesses are all massage parlors and spas that were also raided by the Harris County Sheriff’s office earlier this year.
Ryan says not only do the parlors cause crime and hurt communities but they promote human trafficking.
He says many of the women who work in the sexually oriented businesses are victims and closing down shop will ultimately help them.
Ryan has already been successful at forcing change or the closing of 51 businesses in Harris County.
