Hurant, 50, was arraigned in Brooklyn federal court after his arrest Tuesday morning. He and six others have been charged with “conspiring to violate the Travel Act by promoting prostitution.”[contextly_sidebar id=”V6DLvwRXulbskpT1DGHqbi5MRXodfV1q”]
“As alleged, Rentboy.com attempted to present a veneer of legality, when in fact this Internet brothel made millions of dollars from the promotion of illegal prostitution,” acting U.S. Attorney Kelly T. Currie said.
Hurrant staunchly defended his company when he was pressed by the media shortly after his arraignment:
“Twenty years we’ve been doing it [running Rentboy.com]. And I don’t think we do anything to promote prostitution. I think we do good things for good people and we bring good people together. And I hope that justice will be done in the end.”
