Model Mayhem and human trafficking


If you haven’t heard of it Model Mayhem is a website for models and photographers to network and set up photo shoots. I read an article stating:

Trafficking and rape are at the heart of a federal lawsuit against the site’s owners, Internet Brands.

A woman said she was drugged, raped and trafficked during a supposed photo shoot she set up through Model Mayhem.

The plaintiff, Jane Doe, alleged she was drugged and raped on video then trafficked by two men, Emerson Callum and Lavont Flanders. The lawsuit states that Model Mayhem knew the two men had been committing these crimes to other women across the country and did not stop them or warn users on the site.

A judge on the trial threw out the suit in 2012, but an appeal is working its way through the judicial system in California.
