The mastermind behind the running of a brothel where 19 foreign women were found was yesterday jailed for two years.
Carl Pritchett (53), from Birmingham, will be freed in 31 days as he has already been in custody for 334 days since he was arrested nearly a year ago.
Mr Pritchett had been charged with managing, acting or assisting in the running of a brothel which people resorted to for the act of prostitution between October 15 1998 and September 30 2005.
Two other defendants received community service orders for their role in the running of the brothel.
Nathan Langston (22), from Dudley, will serve 180 hours community service, after denying managing the brothel at the Cuddles Massage Parlor in Birmingham.
He had claimed to have been employed as an IT expert to promote the business.
Susan Richards (50), from Birmingham, will serve 250 hours for unpaid work in the community after admitting being involved in running the brothel before the trial of the two men began.
Judge Michael Dudley said: "Mr Pritchett you were the driving force behind the operation and the sentence I had in mind was two years."
In addressing Susan Richards he said: "You were more than just a cleaner you were a lieutenant - but you are of good character and you can pay your debt to society by working for the community without pay."
Simon Sterling QC, defending Pritchett, said: "There was no evidence of trafficking, cohesion mistreatment or improper behaviour to those who worked at the premises."
Speaking outside court Chief Inspector Eddie Barnet said: "There is another investigation going on into suggestions of human trafficking of the girls who were at the massage parlour.
"After another complaint intelligence learnt the premises was being used as a brothel. It is important that we close it down for the safety of the local community."
The two men were convicted on unanimous verdicts after a jury at Wolverhampton Crown Court retired for just over three hours to consider the evidence at the end of their four day trial.
All three were arrested on September 30, last year during a police raid at Cuddles massage parlour in Bearwood, Birmingham.
Richards and Langston, from Dudley, had been released on bail.
Pritchett, from Birmingham had a previous conviction for living off immoral earnings and was remanded in custody.
They were all arrested after 50 officers from West Midlands Police, including 25 women, raided the massage parlour where they found a number of scantily clad women, a couple having sex and posters on walls detailing charges for sexual services.
Langston, from Dudley, and Pritchett declined to give evidence during the trial.
