Duluth Man Faces Charges for Alleged Sex Trafficking:

32-year-old Markeace Arque Canty and 22-year-old Tabbatha L. Olson, both of Duluth, Minnesota, were recently indicted on child sex trafficking and child porn charges. The pair are accused of prostituting a 17-year-old girl on Backpage after taking explicit photographs of the girl to advertise her on the website. Canty is said to have prostituted the victim between July of 2012 to January of 2013 in at least Minnesota and Indiana.

Not a whole lot of additional details in this case but it does show how the so-called 36,000 filters that Backpage allegedly uses are nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
