RAYMORE, MO — A former wedding photographer who duped at least 25 women into having sex with him by posing as a porn producer has been sentenced to 10 years in jail.

Mario Ambrose Antoine, 34, pleaded guilty to wire fraud in regard to his scheme that lasted from August 2011 to October 2016.

The process involved Antoine pretending to hold various positions of power in the adult-video industry. He told victims he’d be auditioning them for websites and agencies such as “Playboy Worldwide” and “Playboy Asia” — none of which existed.

The “auditions,” of course, required them to have sex with Antoine.

Antoine went so far as to have his targets sign phony contracts and model releases. He also promised them ludicrously lucrative deals ranging from as much as $550,000 to $1.5 million.

After considerable time passed without payment, the would-be models contacted Antoine, who reportedly told them they had violated some form of their agreement and therefore wouldn’t be getting any money.

Upping his greed factor from there, Antoine also reportedly ran blackmail and extortion schemes against some of these women. Antoine allegedly set up fake social-media accounts and used them to contact people in the victims’ lives to demand money. According to prosecutors:

On top of all that, authorities stated that Antoine bilked numerous other victims by way of his wedding photography business.

A joint effort by the FBI, the Raymore Police Department, and the Office of the Missouri Attorney General seems to have finally taken this charmer out of commission.

These friends, boyfriends, or employers would receive messages informing them that the young woman was a porn star, and these messages would often be accompanied by pictures of the young women engaged in the sexual activity.
