The report states that the five victims advised detectives that Porter operates a prostitution ring in the Orange County area and that he meets potential victims by placing ads onwww.craigslist.com and www.seekingarrangements.com. The victims claimed they responded to Porter’s ads and were led to believe they were entering into a personal relations relationship with Porter. They then claimed that, after Porter maintained a romantic relationship with them, he forced them to work as prostitutes. They also claimed they had no means to support themselves and that they lived and worked in hotels in Orange County while they worked for Porter.

These victims further claimed that Porter charged $100 for 15 minutes on up to $300 for an hour of illicit sex. Funds which they were required to give to him.

Porter allegedly threatened the women if they tried to leave he would find them and harm their families. They told that some did try to leave on occasion but that he would text them threats and even promised to kill some of their family members.
