ROME — A New York beauty salon owner pleaded guilty to raping and trafficking teenage girls, prosecutors said Tuesday.
The plea agreement calls for two years of supervised release, the equivalent of a year in prison, and an $8,500 fine.
The attorney general’s office said the agreement does not require the salon owner to register as a sex trafficker or provide a list of victims.
A judge in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday ordered the man to register with authorities and undergo psychological evaluations.
He is due back in court Aug. 6.
A New Jersey beauty salon has faced a number of sex trafficking charges in recent years, but none has been as serious as the one against owner Jose “Josie” Rivera.
The New Jersey Department of Corrections said in July that Rivera had sexually exploited children in the past.
