44-year-old Darryl Taylor of St. Paul, Minnesota, was recently charged with allegedly prostituting two adult women and a 17-year-old girl on Backpage. The 17-year-old was reportedly forced to have sex with 10 men a day for 3 days. Taylor is said to have kept the two adult women hooked on heroin and cocaine to keep them working for him. Like most pimps he would physically assault all of them by choking them or beating them and would keep the money they made for himself.
Speaking of making money, Taylor is said to have placed hundreds of ads of his victims on Backpage. That’s money that Backpage has made off of the violence and rape of these women while calling it their right to free speech, with the rights of these victims to live free be damned.
Backpage may still be licking their financial wounds but they’re still out there reaping the benefits of sex trafficking.
UPDATE 1/26/2017: Earlier this week, Taylor was found guilty and is scheduled to be sentenced on March 16th.
