KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Kansas City-area man is accused of duping dozens of women into having sex with him on camera as “rehearsal” for pornographic movies.

Federal prosecutors announced a 21-count indictment Monday against 33-year-old Mario Antoine, of Raymore. A federal grand jury returned the indictment earlier this month.

Antoine is accused of creating online aliases as a talent manager, photographer and videographer and claiming to work for fictitious companies in the pornography industry. Investigators say he promised to pay the women thousands of dollars.

Prosecutors say when the women complained about not being paid, Antoine forwarded images of the sexual activity to their employers or significant others.

A public defender will be appointed for Antoine, who made his first court appearance Monday.
