Girls Do Porn: FBI Adds Porn Website Founder to Most Wanted List

The FBI has placed the owner and operator of the porn website »Girls Do Porn« on their list of the ten most wanted criminals. The allegations against Michael James Pratt are serious: He is said not only to have deceived women about the publication of the videos, but also to have used violence and coercion to force some victims, including a minor, to film porn.

US authorities have charged him with a range of crimes from sex trafficking to the production of child pornography. For information leading to the capture of Pratt, the FBI has a reward of up to 100.000 Dollars exposed.

Deceived and bullied

Pratt has been on the run for several years. However, others responsible were caught and brought to justice. One of the site’s leading recruiters and producers was sentenced to 20 years in prison last year. Another verdict is expected in October.

Pratt and his accomplices are said to have recruited young women for modeling jobs through Internet ads and fake websites for years. Only after the victims responded to the ads did Pratt and the others reveal that they were in fact seeking women for pornographic video shoots, the indictment documents say.
