• Dillon Jordan hid the proceeds he made from exploiting women through his production company
  • He used several aliases in running his prostitution ring
  • The film producer was also charged with money laundering

“Skin” producer Dillon Jordan was arrested Thursday for allegedly running a long-running prostitution ring across the U.S. and abroad. Jordan was first indicted in June but the indictment was not unsealed until Thursday.

The backer of the 2018 Gyllenhaal drama “The Kindergarten Teacher” was arrested in San Bernardino County and was charged with conspiracy to violate the Mann Act, one count of enticement, one count of use of interstate commerce to promote unlawful activity, and one count of money laundering.

“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,” said Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss in a statement on Jordan’s arrest.

“Now the party is over and the film is a wrap,” he added.

According to an indictment filed in the Southern District of New York, Jordan used his production company, PaperChase Films, and another event planning business as fronts for handling money from the prostitution ring to keep its illicit source under wraps. Jordan allegedly ran the operation of the prostitution ring from 2010 through May 2017, arranging travel for several women to meet clients for sex around the U.S.

The Manhattan federal prosecutors also accused Jordan of going by several aliases, including Daniel Jordan, Daniel Maurice Hatton and Daniel Bohler. He allegedly communicated with his clients via email “to coordinate the prostitution services, which included sending to clients photos of women who were available for hire for prostitution services, and overseeing travel logistics for women to travel to engage in prostitution.”

Sometimes, the film producer allegedly planned the women’s travel himself and coordinated with a "madam" in the U.K. by sharing and referring customers and prostitutes. The court documents did not identify the name of the madam.

Following Jordan’s arrest, FBI Special Agent-in-Charge George M. Crouch Jr. urged anyone victimized by the film producer or anyone with additional information on Jordan’s prostitution ring to come forward and contact the Newark, New Jersey, FBI Office.
