Taquarius recruits young women in suburban shopping malls across the United States by posing as a modeling executive and promising them a modeling contract. He convinced young women to travel to Los Angeles, wined and dined them, and then told them that if they want to be models, they must first work for him as prostitutes.
Taquarius was indicted by a federal grand jury on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges and has pled not-guilty to all charges. Following a detention hearing, US Magistrate Court Judge Janice M. Stewart detained him, pending his trial. Trial is set for July 3, 2014, before U.S. District Court Judge Garr M. King.
