Wild Orchid club owner Peter Wang was facing six months of incarceration but in court, he pleaded with District Court Judge Alex Munsen for no additional jail time.

Wild Orchid club owner Peter Wang may have lost his business but he will keep his freedom.

Wang was sentenced in District Court this morning after a tip led federal authorities to his Wild Orchid bat last year where Wang was employing illegal aliens as “buy me drinkie” girls who sold undercover agents drinks for $20 each.

The operation led to the arrest of Wang as well as four Taiwanese women — Yu-shin Chang, Chiao-en Wang, I-Ying Lin and I-jung Kwo. All pleaded guilty to illegally entering Guam under the guise of tourists.

Wang took a plea deal with the government prior to the four women pleading guilty. According to his attorney, Jeffrey Moots, Wang cooperated fully with the government.

Wang was facing six months of incarceration but in court, he pleaded with District Court Senior Judge Alex Munson for no additional jail time.

Munson sentenced Wang to credit for time served which means that he is now a free man.

As part of his sentence, he has been placed on three years supervised probation and issued a notice of forfeiture amounting to $28,000.
