DOJ: Porn Website Co-Owner Pleads Guilty to Sex Trafficking Conspiracy that Coerced Women

The co-owner of a pornographic website pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of conspiracy sex trafficking by force, fraud, and coercion in a federal court in California.

Michael Isaac Wolfe, 40, faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and is set to be sentenced on October 10, the Department of Justice (DOJ) stated in a press release.

Wolf moved to the United States in 2011, where he worked with co-defendant and owner of the San Diego based-website, GirlsDoPorn, Michael James Pratt, 39, who is still at large.

According to the DOJ, the defendant’s responsibilities to the website included filming videos, uploading the videos, overseeing the company’s finances, and operating other aspects of the business.

Wolfe admitted to coercing women to appear in these pornographic videos by lying to them that they would never appear on the internet, that they would never be posted in the U.S., and that no one would ever find out about them. He also trained co-defendant and camera operator Theodore Gyi, 44, to tell the women the videos would not be posted online.

The defendant also admitted to being aware of Pratt’s role in operating pornwikileaks.com, a website that exposes the identities appearing in pornographic content.
