  1. Isn’t GDP still up and running posting content?

    Also the mope that fled the country is still on the loose somewhere?

  2. I don’t expect these girls seeing one dime of the judgement considering the owner fled to New Zealand with his cash but this might make other producers think twice before conning “performers” into a scene. Certainly the fleeing future felon won’t be able to travel unless he wants to get arrested and extradited to the US. I don’t know of New Zealand has extradition treaties with the US but most other countries do. He could possibly (somehow) get to a third world country that doesn’t extradite (if New Zealand does) but his life has been permanently neutered whether he is de facto restricted to some podunk, poverty stricken country for the rest of his life or if he gets arrested and sentenced to decades in the worst prison America can offer scumbags like him.
