These victims reportedly fell for false promises of love only to be intimidated into engaging in pornographic acts for financial gain of the group.
What Happened Since His Arrest?
Tate’s detention has been extended four times since his initial arrest, most recently for another 30 days by Romanian courts. Tate and his supporters have protested these decisions as unfair treatment by Romanian authorities; their ruling has drawn widespread condemnation from authorities there.
What Are the Consequences of Charges?
Tate faces serious charges that, if proven true, could lead to a lengthy prison sentence.
