Feds Search for GirlsDoPorn Owner, Arraign Videographer on Sex Charges
As the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues its manhunt for the owner of GirlsDoPorn, the site’s videographer pleaded not guilty in federal court to sex trafficking charges.
The owner and three employees of GirlsDoPorn and GirlsDoToys, coerced victims into sexual acts when they were made to believe they were applying for modeling jobs, according to the Department of Justice. Court documents say the GirlsDoPorn staff recruited victims with “threats of force, fraud and coercion.” Financial records show the websites generated more than $17 million in revenue.
The videographer, Matthew Wolfe, was arraigned Friday on multiple sex trafficking charges, including a charge of child pornography production involving a 16-year-old.
The owner of the websites, Michael Pratt, is wanted by the FBI for his alleged involvement in the conspiracy to recruit young women and minors into sex acts. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to his arrest.
