    Landlord pleads

    in prostitution case

    WILLISTON — The owner of a former massage parlor has pleaded no contest to a charge of allowing prostitution at the business.

    As part of the plea deal, Thomas Booska, 68, must donate $500 to a charity that fights human trafficking.

    State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan said he thinks Booska has learned his lesson. He said “you can’t turn a blind-eye when your tenants are engaged in criminal activity.”

    Booska’s attorney said Booska has never had any problems before, he’ll never have any problems again and he’ll come out of this with a clean record.

    He said Booska is cooperating with the federal investigation into the trafficking of women who worked at the former massage parlor in Williston.
