A Kansas City man has admitted to duping dozens of unsuspecting women into having sexual intercourse with him on camera by claiming they were rehearsing for roles in porn movies.

As part of a plea deal with federal prosecutors, 34-year-old Mario Antoine, of Raymore, pled guilty on Friday to one count of wire fraud.

A 21-count indictment initially charged the creep with rape, sodomy, and fraud that would have seen him spend decades in prison.

Federal prosecutors accused Antoine of creating phony aliases online, which included fake Facebook profiles, posing as a talent manager, videographer, and photographer for bogus pornography production companies.

The sleazebag claimed to own porn companies under the false pseudonyms such as Dash Agency,” “Playboy Worldwide,” and “Playboy Asia.”

Antoine, a former wedding photographer, promised to pay female victims thousands of dollars for their participation in his porno movies.

However, as a caveat, the women had to audition for the roles by having with him first.

When women complained after failing to receive payment, Antoine sent images of the sexual acts to their significant others and employers, the New York Post reported.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Antoine faces ten years in prison will be ordered to pay restitution to his victims.

The judge has scheduled sentencing for Sept. 13.
