Hollywood Producer Sentenced for Running Prostitution Ring for “Wealthy Clients”

A well-known Hollywood producer has been sentenced for his involvement in a prostitution ring that provided young women for paid sexual encounters to wealthy clients, including Hollywood executives and politicians. The producer’s actions were considered to be illegal and morally reprehensible, and after being arrested and charged, the prosecution presented evidence such as text messages and bank records that demonstrated his involvement in the prostitution activities.

 

 

Jordan Dillon a California movie producer previously pled guilty to “conspiracy to violate the Mann Act for his operation of an interstate prostitution business.” Court records revealed Jordan operated a “high-end” prostitution ring that would provide wealthy clients with women for a charge of $15,000 or above. Dillon was also found guilty for organizing “sex parties” in the United States and overseas.

 

According to reporting by the National Post, prosecutors submitted evidence that Jordan had operated the business from 2010 to 2017 through a purported party and event planning company and his actual movie production company. They said in a presentence submission that Jordan tried to parlay his prostitution business to produce legitimate movies, since several investors and well-known producers were also clients of his prostitution ring. At least one client invested $250,000 in Jordan’s movie projects, they said.

 

One victim who spoke during the two-hour hearing said she nearly died a decade ago when Jordan invited her to a party and then fed her a mix of drugs that left her permanently brain damaged.

“I never wanted to prostitute my body,” she said, pausing to collect herself before urging the maximum sentence.

The judge said prison was appropriate for a man who operated a prostitution ring that earned him at least $1.4 million.

“To be sure, this was an illegal operation that Dillon Jordan ran and one that caused real harm to real women. And, as we saw today, permanent harm,” Cronan said.

Prosecutors said Jordan was released from a prison in Cuba in 2010 after serving eight years for sex crimes there, and he immediately began linking wealthy individuals he knew with high-end prostitutes, charging between $3,000 and $15,000 per encounter. The government said he pocketed about 40% of the fee.

They said he once boasted that 75 women worked for him, including some he sent abroad to a madam in the United Kingdom.

 

Jordan is listed among dozens of producers on films including the 2018 film “The Kindergarten Teacher,” which featured Maggie Gyllenhaal, and the 2019 movie “The Kid,” which starred Ethan Hawke. The Kindergarten Teacher was a controversial Netflix film focused on a kindergarten teacher who becomes obsessed over her five year old student who would eventually kidnapped him.

 

Per CBS News, this won’t be Dillon’s first time in prison, previously the disgraced producer spent eight years in a Cuban prison for committing sex crimes .

 

This case highlights the issue of human trafficking and exploitation, particularly within the entertainment industry, and serves as a reminder that such actions will not be tolerated. Thankfully, the sentencing reflects the court’s determination that the producer’s actions were both criminal and unethical, and that his activities were harmful to the young women involved. The producer’s conviction and sentencing should serve as a warning to those who engage in similar activities and make it clear that there are severe consequences for those who profit from the exploitation of vulnerable individuals. It is crucial to continue efforts to combat human trafficking and protect those who are most vulnerable to exploitation, abuse, and harm.

 

How much human trafficking and exploitation are going on unpunished in the entertainment industry? It is essential to hold those who engage in such activities accountable and take measures to prevent and address the harm caused to vulnerable individuals.
