WICHITA, Kan. (AP)-- A former worker ensnared in a sex trafficking case at Wichita massage parlors wants to be released from jail to a half-way house pending sentencing.

Xiuqing Tian of Framingham, Mass., faces a hearing on her request Wednesday in federal court. She pleaded guilty in November to helping induce an immigrant to reside unlawfully in the United States.

A sentencing date has not been set.

Tian has agreed to testify against her former employers. In her plea deal, she admitted moving to Wichita to work for the pair and said they encouraged her to perform sex acts for patrons of two massage parlors where she worked.

Tian's lawyer says she has been in custody more than six months and has served more than half of a guideline sentencing range.
