SUMMARY:Ronald Miko, a police officer, was involved in a prostitution business that involved underage females. Co-defendants, Paul Sewell and Michael Johnson, were previously convicted for the prostitution ring and Miko attempted to coerce them not to testify against him by wiring them money. Defendants created an online business called "God's Prostitutes." Defendants coerced the victims to engage in commercial sex acts by branding them with tattoos. After Miko was indicted by the FBI, he pled guilty on an obstruction charge.
