Seattle Times: Massage parlor owner charged with promoting prostitution

The Seattle Times is reporting that Vivian Ellis, 44, also known as Rainbow Love, “has been charged with three counts of second-degree promoting prostitution and attempting to promote prostitution.”

Ellis ran the Sacred Temple in the 3100 block of Eastlake Ave. E. until she was arrested in May 2009 after a receptionist at the temple complained she was fired for refusing to masturbate clients as her manager requested.

The Times says prosecutors say it took nine months to bring charges because extra investigation was required. Ellis is due in court to be arraigned on March 2.
