    Two Virginia men accused of setting up an alleged prostitution ring in which women were driven to clients’ doors and replaced with new women weekly pleaded guilty in federal court.

    Luis Bonilla-Hernandez and Eliazar Mota face up to five years in prison when they are sentenced in April.

    Bonilla-Hernandez ran the operation out of his Sterling home, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said.

    He and Mota would bring in women from New York and Pennsylvania each week, then take them to homes for dozens of transactions each day.

    [DC] Virginia Men Accused of Prostitution Ring in Which Women Were Driven to Clients

    Two Virginia men are charged in an alleged prostitution ring in which authorities say women were driven to clients’ doors and replaced with new women weekly. Northern Virginia Bureau Chief Julie Carey reports.

    At the end of the week, the women would get a cut of the money, and new women would be brought in to replace them.

    The prostitutes were advertised on a card for automotive services that included the word "treinteras," promising a sex act for $30.

    Court documents detailed an afternoon when the FBI watched Bonilla-Hernandez drive a woman to a neighborhood and drop her off at four homes. The average visit lasted about 10 minutes.

    The sheriff’s office said it identified multiple women used in the operation and has video surveillance, phone records and GPS tracking data from one of the vehicles.
