Justice for Idaho Teens Lured By Fake Modeling Agent
He promised a modeling contract, but lured these three Idaho women into prostitution instead.
38 year old Taquarius Ford has been convicted of sex trafficking, fraud, and obstruction of justice. He has been sentenced to 33 years in prison although he denies that he coerced the women into prostitution.
According to the Idaho Statesman, Ford preyed on 40 different women, but three of them were from Idaho.
An employee at a hotel near the airport in Portland rescued one of the Boise teens after she suspected prostitution.
Ford allegedly forced these women into prostitution between 2007 and 2013.
According to one Idaho victim, Ford took her to the Playboy mansion where she was forced to have unwanted sex. Another Idaho victim says he took her to a party at Paris Hilton's house.
Please be careful and very leery if someone approaches you with this type of an offer. For now we're grateful that this dangerous man will be behind bars for many years to come.
