Greeley to pay $150K to woman acquitted of prostitution

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — The city of Greeley has agreed to pay $150,000 to a woman who was acquitted of running a prostitution business out of her massage parlor.

The Greeley Tribune reports Ping Wang, a Chinese immigrant, was arrested in February 2015 and faced deportation if convicted. A jury found her not guilty, and Wang filed a lawsuit in April claiming that a detective lied when he said she tried to give him an inappropriate massage.

The city council voted Tuesday to pay Wang as part of a settlement agreement she reached with the city. As part of the agreement, the city does not admit any fault in the case.

The detective was not fired but left the department in June.
