The operator of two pornography sites has been jailed for twenty years after pleading guilty to sex trafficking charges.

Matthew Isaac Wolfe persuaded women to be filmed having sex with him by falsely claiming that the videos would not be posted online.

Identifying information about the women involved was leaked, putting them at risk, but Wolfe continued to lie that this wouldn't happen.

The prosecuting lawyer in the case against Wolfe said that his actions had a "devastating impact" on his victims. The FBI said:

“Wolfe lied to and preyed on vulnerable young women, subjecting them to years of relentless harassment, fear and mental anguish".

The Bureau is trying to track another man, Michael James Pratt, who was involved in the conspiracy to exploit women. A statement says:

“The defendant lied and tricked these women, made millions along the way, and left his co-conspirators to face justice while he fled.

“Michael James Pratt is a danger to society, regardless of where he is, and is likely still victimizing people while on the run”.

US Campaign group Exodus Cry is raising awareness of extreme abuses by the world's largest porn site, PornHub. This video explains more.
