On Friday, 5/12/17, in Kansas City MO, Mario Antoine, sex scammer, pleaded guilty. Both his and the federal attorney agreed to a sentence of 10 years, as he pleaded guilty to wire fraud and avoided up to 60 years confinement on all charges.
Antoine induced women into sex by claiming to audition them as porn stars. Although he’d admitted to victimizing 10 or more women, information I’d received stated that over 30 women actually came forward once the charges became public.
The Federal Prosecutor referred to Antoine as a “serial rapist,” yet even though rape by deception is second degree rape in Kansas City, the SVU Prosecutor, Jill Icenhower, filed no charges, whatsoever, in this case.
In addition to inducing sex by deception, Antoine silenced his victims by a practice gaining recognition as “sextortion.” He threatened to release, and in some cases, actually released the porn videos he’d taken to friends, family, and employers.
If ever a case underscored the need to standardize the meaning of “consent” throughout society, this is it! Consent means “freely given, knowledgeable and informed agreement,” not just “agreement.”
Antoine READ THIS BLOG!
In the indictment the prosecutor wrote to lock up Antoine, she included the fact that he’d read this blog. She was incensed that he’d done so and learned how damaging his behavior was for the victim, yet he proceeded never-the-less. In an interview with the Kansas City Star, she referred to Antoine as a “serial rapist.” But even though “rape by deception” is 2nd degree rape in Kansas City MO, no criminal rape charges were filed.
