Ring Boss, a hateful woman accused of trafficking prostitutes to the UK and ‘looking beautiful’ for money for her luxurious life, was revealed in prison this week.
Catalina Kojokaru, 37, had a luxurious lifestyle with her boyfriend of 42 years, Jamie Dunn, because she was earning २५ 250,000 a year by running a large prostitution ring to sexually exploit vulnerable women and smuggle them into the UK.
Meanwhile her brother, who was also involved in the ring, has been on at least 12 different luxury vacations since the ring was established, including Thailand, North Africa and the Dominican Republic.
Cojocaru was instrumental in starting the crime ring with Dawn in Northampton before expanding across the country to Nottingham and Birmingham – earning an early 20,000 a month.
Police raided his Northampton home on January 17, where they found detailed evidence of the operation and the key role he played in organizing it.
Catalina Kojokaru, 37, had a luxurious lifestyle with her boyfriend of 42 years, Jamie Dunn, as she earned २५ 250,000 a year using a large prostitution ring.
Kojokaru and Don recently boasted about a trip to London in December 2021, where they visited expensive restaurants.
Kojokaru was pictured outside a luxury hotel that charges up to £ 562 for a double room.
Dunn shared shameless photos of their happy lives a few months before their trial and sentencing – including her partner’s racy snaps in bikinis.
Although the partners started their trafficking ring, the couple are now married and have two children – but are now in prison for years.

She mainly traveled from Romania to the UK as a sex worker, arranging daily flights and transportation to the property of her choice.
Women were then forced to engage in off-street prostitution in Midlands brothels.
A court has heard Kojokaru ask women to ‘look good’ and ‘semi-nude’ when asked to ‘look sexy’ and wear makeup.
Police recovered a list and text messages showing that Kojokaru had been in daily contact with them as the “boss” of sex workers and kept a record of daily takers.
Evidence shows that women earn up to £ 1,640 per day, with the gang taking 50 percent from each woman between November 2015 and January 2017.
One day, where seven women made £ 900, she wrote at the bottom of her diary: ‘I’m fine, I’m fine.’
She forced the woman to work long hours to earn a living.
The gang had exploited up to 13 women at the same time and rented four separate plots of land.
Pictures on Dawn’s Facebook page show the couple recently spending time together in luxury venues in December 2021.
A photo shows them staying at The Montcallum Hotel in London’s Marble Arch just before Christmas, a luxury hotel where prices go up to £ 562 per night for a double room at the time of publication.
During the same trip, the couple visited Marco Pierre White’s Mr. White’s restaurant in Leicester Square.
Marco Pierre White was the first UK chef to offer three Michelin stars.
The couple has also dabbled in other luxury restaurants – including The Point Restaurant in the Haven Hotel on the bridge – where the main meal ranges from 21 to £ 38.
The arrested couple is married and has two children.
Don’s Facebook profile makes no reference to the crime he and Catalina committed, but includes several of the couple’s holiday shots in the sun.
“Happy Birthday to my wonderful wife, best friend and most patient mother on the planet,” Dawn wrote, wishing Kojokaru a happy birthday on December 4 last year. Thank you for everything you do every day to turn our wheels. ‘
Prosecutor Aina Nelson told the court that Kojokaru had done so “in the hope of making a big profit.”
In sentencing, Kojokaru Judge Rebecca Crane said: “You exploited the labor of others for substantial financial gain, and this business would have continued without the intervention of the police.”
Kojokaru was sentenced Tuesday (June 14) by Northampton Crown Court to three years and nine months in prison.
Don’s role in the prostitution ring involved ensuring a “constant supply” of women to work for him and his partner and creating online ads – and about £ 11,000 was spent on advertising sex services.
Don and Kojokaru, who live in the posh village of Lower Harleston, Northampton, where the house is valued at an average of £ 900,000, were accused of trafficking women into the UK.
They both deal with their confidence as they choose to embark on their play activities.
Dunn was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison.
Don’s father, Martin Dunn, 74, was also involved in the conspiracy, and Kojokaru’s brother, Andrei Kojokaru, 26.
Dunn Snr pays for airline tickets for women arriving in the UK, helping them collect from airports and even from financial hotels and service-providing apartments.
Jamie Dunn’s father, 74, Martin, was also involved in the conspiracy and helped pick up women from UK airports.
Andrei Kojokaru’s job was to use brothel phones and meet clients and women, take them to the property and collect trafficked women from the airport.
Andrei Kojokaru’s Facebook profile reveals that he may have used his earnings as part of a ring to sell his wares around the world.
Since the ring started in November 2015, he has been posting about second vacation, second vacation in Dominican Republic, Greece, Romania, Prague, Morocco (including camel riding in Sahara Desert), Greece, London, Spain, Tenerife. Visited Romania, Thailand and Paris – as well as Romania a few months before the siege of trafficking and exploitation began.
Andrei Kojokaru, 26, has shared dozens of photos of luxury holidays around the world since the smuggling ring was established in 2015.
Kozuku’s brother also went to Thailand on a luxury trip – at home he was helping his sister to sexually exploit a woman.
Andrei traveled throughout Morocco, posting proud photos of his adventures in the city and in the Sahara Desert.
Andrei Kozukaru also twice visited the Dominican Republic (left) and Greece (right).
Martin Dunn of Northampton was given a 12-month community order and 100 hours of unpaid work to obtain criminal property after a large sum of money was sold.
Northampton’s Andrei Kojokaru was also sentenced to one year in prison, suspended for 14 months and 150 hours of unpaid work for conspiracy to control prostitution for profit.
The charges, part of Operation Eaton, were the first modern slavery and human trafficking charges secured by Northamptonshire police.
Detective Inspector Carrie Powers said: “It was a very complicated and lengthy investigation but I am really happy that through it we were able to secure the first charge of force under modern day slavery law and get the four convicts convicted.
‘This organized crime gang exploited vulnerable women in the UK by falsely promising a better life.
Instead, they forced them to have sex with a large number of men regardless of their rights or welfare.
‘These women worked long hours, only a large part of their earnings was taken by the gang which would later be used to fund a luxurious lifestyle.
“Investigations into such incidents may be complicated, but the Northamptonshire Police are fully committed to combating modern slavery and bringing to justice those who exploit vulnerable members of our community.”
