Update: Former Spa Owner Sentenced


Former 93rd Street Spa owner William Randy Knox will spend a year behind bars in federal prison for running the spa as a front for prostitution.

Knox was sentenced in federal court on Monday to one year and one day in prison and ordered to pay a fine of $100,000.

Knox admitted his role in what was called by federal investigators a massage parlor that was a front for prostitution. Channel 6 News first broke the story early last year.

Back in May, Knox plead guilty to charges of racketeering and money laundering.

In exchange for the plea, the court dismissed six other counts. Knox has forfeited two vehicles, three bank accounts and wrote a check to the court for restitution in the amount of $225,000.

“Mr. Knox has accepted responsibility for what he's done and we're moving forward,” said his attorney, Stu Dornan. “He's making every effort to put himself in the best position by paying back restitution and doing what he need to do to become whole."

Four others were also charged in the case. Investigators have declined releasing the customer list, which they've said had some high profile names on it.
