Visa broker in Thai sex trafficking ring pleads guilty

Feds extradited Sumalee Intarathong from Thailand last year to face charges in case first filed in 2016


November 30, 2022

A key member of a massive Thailand-based sex trafficking conspiracy pleaded guilty Tuesday to helping secure fraudulent visas for victims sent to Minnesota and elsewhere in a case first charged in 2016.

Sumalee Intarathong, who also goes by Alice Spencer Warren, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit money laundering — more than one year after being extradited from Belgium to face charges.

According to Intarathong's plea agreement filed Tuesday, she was described as largely acting as a "visa application broker" for the organization. She and more than three dozen others were first charged in 2016 as part of an international probe dubbed "Bangkok Dark Nights."
