A businessman must pay to keep his own building in the wake of the Harmony Spa scandal.

Last year, prosecutors went after Thomas Booska, 68. He's the Williston landlord who police say knew about illegal sex acts happening in his building. The feds say Booska ignored their warnings and allowed the prostitution to continue. He even provided the women with transportation around town.

Booska pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge.

The government seized the building, but now Booska has agreed to pay $100,000 to keep it.
