SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two San Francisco sisters have been charged with operating a sex-trafficking ring in the city's Richmond District.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that prosecutors say 37-year-old Qiao "Judy" He and 36-year-old Gaineng He each face seven counts of pimping, seven counts of pandering, one count of conspiracy to pimp and one count of conspiracy to pander.

Investigators have accused the women of running two brothels and of charging men up to $200 to have sexual intercourse with young women, the Chronicle says.

Authorities said it was not known whether the women forced into prostitution were underage.

The sisters were arrested Monday but have been released on $50,000 bond. They are set to be arraigned Friday.
