RAYMORE, Mo. – A former wedding photographer who tricked two dozen women into having sex with him was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Wednesday.
U.S. District Judge Beth Phillips denied parole for Mario Ambrose Antoine, 34, of Raymore, Missouri whose sentence was the result of a plea deal.
On May 12, 2017, Antoine pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud, admitting that he defrauded numerous victims in a scheme that lasted from Aug. 28, 2011, until Oct. 11, 2016.
Antoine, posing in various roles as a company owner, recruiter, talent manager, photographer and videographer for multiple fictitious companies and private modeling websites (such as “Playboy Worldwide,” and “Playboy Asia”), conned women into thinking they were auditioning for lucrative roles in pornographic films.
