Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. Together with our partners on the Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, we are dedicated to investigating and bringing federal charges against those who commit these crimes. As alleged in court documents, Matthew Erausquin, 46, was a frequent commercial sex customer of six underage girls and three other young adults from June through at least August As alleged in court documents, Erausquin secretly recorded some of the underage girls while he engaged in sexual activity with them.
He also continued to engage in commercial sex with some of the girls after they turned 18 years old. After one victim moved out of state, he flew her back to Virginia for the holidays and paid her for sex.
Erausquin is charged with six counts of sex trafficking of minors, one count of production of child pornography, one count of transporting a person across state lines for purposes of prostitution, and three counts of coercion and enticement to travel in interstate commerce for prostitution. If convicted, Erausquin faces a mandatory minimum sentence of fifteen years in prison and a maximum penalty of life.
Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into the U. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
