    A New Zealand porn boss charged with sex trafficking is on the run from US authorities

    A New Zealand porn boss charged with sex trafficking is on the run from US authorities


    The US Department of Justice says Michael James Pratt is a fugitive.

    Pratt heads adult video provider Girls Do Porn - the target of a claim in the San Diego Superior Court by 22 women.

    They claim the company was advertised on Craigslist as a modelling website and they were lied to about the distribution of pornography they took part in.

    Instead the lawsuit alleges the resulting videos were posted directly to the internet.
