APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:Beginning at least in 2006, defendants Lavont Flanders and Emerson Callum recruited women into fake modeling auditions over the internet using a variety of aliases and sometimes pretending to be well-known companies. When the victims arrived for the auditions they were drugged by Flanders with Xanax. Flanders then transported victims to Callum where he recorded him having sex with the victims. Defendants sold the video-recordings online. The victims were not given money or other benefits for the films. Exact number of victims is unknown but at least 50 crimes were reported. Defendants were found guilty of all charges and sentenced to twelve terms of life in prison.
