A lawyer from Virginia is charged with sex-trafficking after luring many underage high school girls by becoming their “sugar daddy”.
The 45-year-old Matthew Erausquin, who is a founding partner of the firm Consumer Litigation Associations, has been claimed for paying at least six girls, who were aged 16 and 17, to engage in sexual acts from June 2017 through at least September 2019, according to court documents.
In May 2019, a high school girl reported to the Fairfax County Police that a man in his 40s had paid $1,000 to two other girls for a threesome, and following that the investigation began, records show.
Matthew Erausquin gave one of the girls Tiffany’s bag and possibly a sexually transmitted infection. The same girl later had a mental breakdown and was hospitalized.
Investigators said that the creepy lawyer found some of the girls on a website named seekingarrangement.com, that links up “sugar daddies” with “sugar babies.”
According to the site rules, the girls were at least 18 years old. However, the official declaration states that Matthew Erausquin had known that the girls were not adults.
Furthermore, the 45-year-old lawyer knew some of the victims’ real ages after they turned 18, but he was not surprised because he knew their ages the entire time, and he loved it, according to the document.
The victims told the authorities that Erausquin knew their ages, but he didn’t care that they were minors. ‘I gave him my real bday he said he didn’t wanna do the math,’ said one of the Erausquin victim.
The defense attorney was not listed for Erausquin, and he didn’t answer a call Thursday requesting comment.
On the firm’s website, it is written that he is a consumer rights lawyer who has fought many cases about mortgage servicing disparities and automobile fraud.
