4:40 pm on 11 December 2007

The federal court in Honolulu has postponed the sentencing of two Chinese nationals convicted for their roles in a prostitution ring uncovered in American Samoa last year.

Fu Shen Kuo and Shengi Wang has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the civil rights of women who were smuggled into American Samoa.

The defendants were set to be sentenced today but court records say it has been rescheduled for January the 4th.
