A 34-year-old Missouri man pleaded guilty last week to federal charges that he tricked women into having sex.
Mario Ambrose Antoine was found guilty of one count of wire fraud after convincing more than ten women to have sex with him. He then attempted to blackmail some of the women.
As part of his plea deal, he will receive a prison sentence of 10 years.
According to The Kansas City Star, Mr. Antoine tricked more than ten women into having sex with him after he promised he could give them a career in the porn industry.
Under the guise of auditioning women for jobs with his companies, Antoine convinced them to engage in sexual and pornographic activity, according to prosecutors.

He would invite the women to his home and supposedly make a videotape of the women have sex with Antoine that he claimed would be sent to porn producers, but that did not occur.
Mr. Antoine was released from an earlier prison sentence in 2016.
