‘Girls Do Porn’ Employees Charged With Sex Trafficking, Potentially Face Life in Prison



· Owners and employees of Girls Do Porn were charged with federal sex trafficking counts on Thursday. The charges are separate from a civil suit in which 22 women allege the company misrepresented the nature of the films, that they were coerced into doing porn after being told it was a modeling job, and that the company lied about how the films would be distributed. Lawyers for the women say they've spoken to more than 100 additional women who corroborate the allegations
· Girls Do Porn owner Michael Pratt, lead videographer Michael Wolfe, and GDP's main actor Ruben "Andre" Garcia are charged with sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion. Pratt, Wolfe Garcia are charged with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, as is administrative assistant Valerie Moser. If convicted, they face up to life in prison and a $250,000 fine
· Pratt fled the country last month and is considered a fugitive, per the DOJ
· Girls Do Porn is still producing videos. In August, after a report by Vice, PornHub contacted the women in the suit and took down their videos. You can still find Girls Do Porn videos on the site, though. Per NBC, GDP & their sister sites generate $17mn in revenue
