    A mother and son were arrested for running a prostitution ring out of Dallas.

    According to federal court documents, Helen Yu Kim and her son Daniel Mendoza Jr. tried to supply women for an undercover Dallas officer.

    Kim’s son had told the undercover cop about his mother running a prostitution ring during a drug exchange. After which, police set up a sting and asked for Kim to supply them with about 20 women for some visiting businessmen.

    The undercover officer met with Mendoza to discuss prices and was told that it would cost $2000 per girl if the meeting happened at a hotel. 

    Mendoza also asked if any of the men would be needing cocaine, Cialis or Viagra and even claimed that he had seen a picture of one of the girls, saying she looked like "'a little K-Pop Asian girl.'" 

    The arrangement was set up for Nov. 1 where both Mendoza and his mother were arrested and each charged with using a facility in interstate commerce to promote prostitution.
