Jordan is accused of running the prostitution ring between 2010 and 2017. He reportedly partnered with a UK-based madam to share and refer various prostitutes and customers. According to the indictment, Jordan hid the profits from the operation using an event-planning firm and his movie production company, PaperChase Films.
“As alleged, for years, Dillon Jordan operated an extensive and far-reaching prostitution business, using a purported event planning company and a movie production company to conceal the proceeds he made from exploiting women. Now the party is over and the film is a wrap,” said Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss.
Jordan has released several films starring A-list actors, including The Kid with Ethan Hawke and the Maggie Gyllenhaal drama The Kindergarten Teacher, which won a directing award at the Sundance Film Festival.
Dillon Jordan has been charged with enticement, use of interstate commerce to promote unlawful activity, and money laundering, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
