Alleged prostitution ring operator accused of witness tampering


Posted: 3:47 PM- A man charged with running a prostitution ring in Cottonwood Heights has been arrested for witness tampering in the case.
    Steven Santiago Maese, 31, was booked into the Salt Lake County jail Monday under suspicion of witness tampering.
    Maese, 31, is scheduled to go to trial tomorrow on felony counts of exploiting a prostitute, money laundering and racketeering.
