DA's office busts alleged prostitution ring

The District Attorney's office says a recent prostitution ring bust in Westchester is the result of a two-year undercover operation with several local police departments.

Prosecutors say Kenneth Fuina and Shawana Smith ran the operation from their homes in White Plains by recruiting, managing and sending out more than 30 women to various high-end hotels over the last two years.

Both were arrested and charged with promoting prostitution. Genevieve Margaret Peattie was also arrested and charged.

Fuina and Smith face a maximum of two and one-third to seven years in state prison.
