BOZEMAN — A 70-year-old woman arrested during raids on two Belgrade spas has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor prostitution.

Ok Nan Tenette changed her plea Tuesday during a hearing before District Judge Mike Salvagni. He gave her a six-month suspended jail sentence. She has already served 71 days in jail.

The sentence was similar to those given to two other women arrested during raids at two Belgrade spas in July. Jihong "Lily" Yu and Yu-Sun Gasperi of Auburn, Wash., pleaded guilty to misdemeanors and were sentenced last month.

Defense attorney Eric Brewer says the owners of the spas are being investigated federally, possibly for human trafficking.

Officials say both the VIP Spa and the Beijing Spa have been shut down.
