El Paso couple facing federal charges

EL PASO, Texas - An El Paso couple is now facing federal charges for allegedly running an escort service for more than a year.

Maria and Ronald Blake are charged with aiding and abetting. Maria Blake also faces a charge of coercion and enticement.

ABC-7 also obtained court documents that said Maria "knowingly persuaded, induced and enticed...{the victim} to travel in interstate and foreign commerce to engage in prostitution."    

The documents also said the feds intend on seizing the money the couple made from the escort service, as well as property they own on Tierra Nueva Street in far east El Paso.

The Blakes' mugshots are not available because it's a federal case.
