Doctor charged with Backpage child trafficking


Judge: Accused doctor can’t leave jail:

Doctor Charged In Sex Ring, Drug Case:

Oh, Backpage. Just because there has been a craigslist media storm lately don’t think that I’ve forgotten about you.

Anyway, 35-year-old Dr. Joshua Payer of Sioux Falls, South Dakota has been arrested and charged with child trafficking since he used the services of an underage prostitution ring that was being run on the Village Voice Media-owned If that sounds slightly familiar it’s because that’s the same Backpage prostitution ring that was being run by Brandon Thompson and Megan Hayes of Tea, SD that I’ve posted about before.

Payer is accused of using the services of 16 and 17-year-old prostitutes. He’s also been charged with writing phony oxycontin prescriptions for Thompson.

His request for a pre-trial release was denied. For once a judge doing his job. He’s looking at 80 years behind bars.

The reason you don’t hear a lot about Backpage is they’re run by Village Voice Media that also owns several newspapers including The Village Voice. A theory that has been proposed to me that I tend to agree with is the reason Backpage stories don’t make the news as often because other media outlets are afraid to step on the toes of another.

Backpage is just as equally culpable for human trafficking as craigslist. If you read any of their publications you are supporting human trafficking.
