TN man accused of running call girl service with 400 prostitutes

KNOXVILLE (AP) - A Knoxville man is accused of running a call girl service in Knox and surrounding counties that employed 400 prostitutes.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports 36-year-old Selvin Salvador Perdomo was arrested this week after a year of surveillance by an FBI task force.

The FBI claims Perdomo almost exclusively employed female illegal immigrants. He is charged under the Mann Act, which makes it a crime to transport people across state lines or U.S. borders for prostitution.

Perdomo's attorney, Tracy Jackson Smith, didn't return a call to the News Sentinel. Perdomo waived a Friday detention hearing and remained jailed in Blount County.
