An Orange County man and woman are facing prostitution charges for allegedly running a sex for hire operation out of a motel in Anaheim.

Investigators say Irina Martinez, 27, of Santa Ana and Andres Terrones, 28, of Anaheim forced women to work as prostitutes in several rooms at a Motel 6 located at 100 West Disney Way.
