Kunyi He made thousands of pounds a month controlling 10 brothels across the South-east including sex venues in Altwood Road in Maidenhead, Monarch Court in Langley and Copper Beeches Guesthouse in Knowl Hill between 2008 and last year.
The 39-year-old was sentenced to three and a half years behind bars at Reading Crown Court this morning. He was found guilty of conspiring to keep brothels for the purpose of prostitution by a jury following a two-week trial.
Judge Peter Ross told the court Kunyi He worked as a 'partner in crime' with his ex-girlfriend Ai Ju Su and Manjit Singh to run the brothels. But He took home the largest share of the profit which amounted to at least £200,000, although Judge Ross said there could have been more.
The trio regularly moved prostitutes and madams around to different brothels within the seedy enterprise which also had branches in Portsmouth and Cambridge.
Kunyi He also used fake ID's to pay rent, council tax, and to buy advertisement in the local press advertising 'high class oriental massages' with a 'full, passionate service'.
Judge Ross said: "One of the most serious features in relation to your case is the use of a forged passport. This court has seen this item and its high quality."
Kunyi He, of Totteridge Road in High Wycombe, was arrested along with Su and Singh in June last year following a UK Border Agency strike against sex-for-sale which saw 13 addresses targeted across the South-east.
Kunyi He was sentenced to three and a half years in prison.
Su, 35, of Abbey Barn Road in High Wycombe pleaded guilty to conspiring to keep brothels in December. Singh, of Copper Beeches Guesthouse, also pleaded guilty to the same charge.
They are due to be sentenced at the same court.
