The son of the former Louisiana Supreme Court Chief Justice allegedly paid for sex with a 12-year-old girl and made her work for him as a prostitute, sharing explicit pictures to promote her to men.

Pascal Calogero III, 59, was arrested and charged with one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor, US Attorney Peter G. Strasser announced Wednesday.

The girl is now 14 and the allegations date back as far as between May 9 and June 5 in 2017 according to a press release from the Department of Justice.

It states that in a bill of information, he is believed to have worked with someone only referred to as ‘J.B.’ to advertise the child’s services via online classifieds.

The suspect is one of Pascal F. Calogero Jr.’s eight children and one of his three sons, Michael Calogero, has his own law firm.

His co-conspirator received telephone calls and text messages for inquiries and arranging times and locations with the victim and those who wanted to pay for sex with the minor.

The indictment states Calogero III would pay $120 at a time to have sex with her and although the girl earned $1,000 per day, she didn’t get to keep the majority.

‘He required her to turn over all, or most, of the money she earned from prostitution to him,’ the release states.

Calogero III allegedly sent explicit images of the victim in emails and text messages between the dates of May 16 and 22 and would at times drive the victim to meet the men at a hotel.

The US Attorney’s Office of the Eastern District of Louisiana added that many times the crimes took place within his own home in Metairie, Louisiana.
