Backroom Casting Couch Porn Site Recruiter Antonio Adrian Gonzalez Arrested on Kiddy Porn Charges

Antonio Adrian Gonzalez, Backroom Casting Couch's top "talent" recruiter.
As we mentioned earlier this week, law enforcement agencies across the Valley are checking out the sleazy, Scottsdale-based porn website Backroom Casting Couch -- and now it's short its best "talent" recruiter.

Antonio Adrian Gonzalez, 28, was arrested yesterday on kiddy-porn charges following a multi-jurisdictional investigation into his web-based "modeling" and photography businesses.

Gonzalez, as multiple sources have confirmed to New Times, is the main recruiter for Backroom Casting Couch, and its star, herpe-plagued Eric Whitaker.

If you're not familiar with how Backroom Casting Couch works, or how Whitaker -- who's seen on the site having unprotected sex with dozens of young women -- has herpes, click here.

According to the Chandler Police Department, detectives in Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Tempe have all received multiple complaints about Gonzalez trying to lure underage girls to appear on "adult websites."

Chandler Sergeant Joe Favazzo tells New Times Backroom Casting Couch is included in those websites.

According to Favazzo, Gonzalez was recruiting underage girls and adults to model for his websites, photosbygonzo.com and gonzomodeling.com. He says Gonzalez had sex with some of the underage girls, photographed it, and sent the images to others.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, in April of 2010, Gonzalez invited a 17-year-old girl to his house at 8854 South Grandview Drive in Tempe to pose for photographs she could use in a portfolio.

During the shoot, Gonzalez tried to pull the girl's skirt down and asked her take some nude photos. The girl declined, but that didn't stop "Gonzo."

Despite the girl shooting down his advances, Gonzalez pulled her onto his lap and tried to untie the bikini top she was wearing. She again told him she wasn't interested in nude photos, which Gonzalez must have interpreted as "I want to touch your penis" because that's what happened next.

After getting shot down twice by the girl, Gonzalez, court docs state, "forced the girl's hand onto his erect penis."

The girl again told him she wasn't interested in anything sexual. Gonzalez responded by taking the girl to his computer and showing her photos of him having sex with a girl the victim knew to be under 19. In fact, it turns out the girl in the photos having sex with Gonzalez was only 16 at the time.

Gonzalez copped to it all. He admitted to knowing the girls were underage, and told police he uses social media websites to recruit girls to appear on Backroom Casting Couch.

Another victim of Gonzalez and Whitaker's is Elizabeth Hawkenson, who during a September interview with New Times said Gonzalez was the reason she ended up on Whitaker's couch.

She said she agreed to do some modeling so she could pay for school at Arizona State University, and the two hounded her about how much more money she could make if she made a "reality" porn film with Whitaker.

After constant harassment, Hawkenson made an idiotic decision: she agreed -- on the condition that the video would only appear on the part of the website people had to pay to see, with the assumption that not too many people would ever see it.

Whitaker, however, submitted the video of him having sex with Hawkenson to free, highly trafficked porn sites, and that's how the 18-year-old girl became a "star."

A highly publicized rumor was started (likely by Whitaker to drive traffic to his site) that the video caused Hawkenson to lose her scholarship to ASU, which, we discovered, was false.

The humiliation, she says, was so embarrassing that she dropped out of school after only a few weeks and left Arizona for good. Her video, however, lives on at the Backroom Casting Couch website.

Gonzalez has been charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, two counts of furnishing obscene materials to a minor, two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, and one count of sexual abuse. Gonzalez's arrest report indicates that additional charges are pending.

"Gonzo's" currently in a Maricopa County Jail. Whitaker remains a free man -- for now.

Herpes Simplex 1 is very common and NOT a STD. http://www.herpes.com/hsv1-2.h...

I'm not condoning this guy's behavior, scamming these unsuspecting individuals into false hope to make a lot of money. This is no different from those Nigerian lottery scams.

James King, anyone who is going to defend that scum Eric or Antonio and call what they do "entertainment" is just as sick as they are in my opinion and I'm sure most others opinions as well. These guys are disgusting and I have quite a few friends who have been contacted by both of them on facebook, myspace, twitter, etc and being asked to model for them most when they were underage. I have no doubt in my mind that what you call "accusations" are facts. Go somewhere else to defend child molesters!

     Just saw the long version of the video, she comes off as such an arrogent, do anything for money slut compared to the innocent victim of the short version.  I love how she brags at the end about what "a smart girl she is".     Yep, letting a stranger in yout butt without protection, especially when that guy has had his dong in hundreds of other butts before you so willingly let the thing in your mouth and bung hole is really smart Lizzy.     Then letting him put in on the internet where your friends and lovely family can see close ups of your crotch and butt hole and him butt bonking you and blasting on your face and in your mouth for all of eternal is really smart.  Everytime someone googles you for the rest of your life they will see pics and articles about it.     Yep, you're a really smart girl Libby.

What happened to the BRCC site? Last year it was the hottest site on the web and it looked like Eric W was going to be the next Ed Powers. He took a simple concept and just took off with it, he had a huge fan base and was getting smoking hot girls from schools like ASU. His twitter followers couldn't wait for a pic of the next upcoming girl. He was so big even Youtube had skits about him.        Now it seems like the site has been abandoned? He only updates about 1 girl a month and never twitters anymore. Instead of hot college girls he now has tattooed skanks that look like they live on the street, I can't believe how much the quality of the girls has gone down. Does anyone know what the problem is, will Eric shut down the site this year? He could have been another Rodney Moore.

Yes. The Little Fella isn't updating with near the regularity. He has now even gone to the extent of removing the dates from update.  It's pretty obvious that the site doesn't actually deceive any of the models. But, it is also pretty obvious that the Little Fella is having trouble shooting content.  Slower and slower and slower updates......and less of his vapid rhetoric on his Twitter page.

His friend and possible business partner on exploitedcollegegirls  seems to be having no issue with regular content.

The site is clearly suffering. Updates are becoming more sporadic and infrequent......as is the quality of the hired talent. The little man appears to be experiencing some misfortune.

Everytime her father googles his own name, he will see pics and articles about his daughter ; her young sisters, now 18 & 16…, when searching their own name – even with « Safe search » on – will see some porn pics of their older sister ! (Every day, I ask Google to remove some porn pics one may see with « Safe search » on ; they are still there : try « Safe search ».) Her younger sister is not allowed to see her video – being under 18 – ; the other is 17 or 18 ; I bet the whole family – parents are about 41, children, 16 to 23 – has seen how smart is Elizabeth Anne, a former good musician, they say.

Yes, the site seems to be going downhill, maybe because word of mouth is telling the girls to stay away? Appearing on the BRCC seems to take an emotional toll on the young girls who appear on it for a quick buck.      Libby "Elizabeth H" is now escorting, "KC" Sabrina Lukavsky had to leave school when people foung out and "Stacy" Maritza Quinlan is now a grad assistant at a college inTexas but doesn't even have her picture next to her contact information on the schools site. It seems that the BRCC will always haunt these girls

What accredited university awarded you a Bachelor of Arts in Telecommunications?  I am just curious because I want to inform them that their graduates are unaware of the existence of periods and general grammatical structure.  I also like your description of your net assets.  It is impressive to see how one can summarize their entire existence in just 1 sentence.  I wish you all the best and I hope upon reading this post you will contact your degree awarding institution and demand a refund immediately.

Erin could be right, but I think Sabrina Lukavsky really did burn her boyfriend and that's why there was so much out there about her. There was also alot of interest in Stacy, maybe because she was a real soccer player for Grand Canyon and looked like the girl next door?     Don't know what happened to sabrina but they Maritza Quinlan "Stacy" is now an athletic trainer at a college in Texas

Wecan blame Libby for the porn mistake but like so many girls with divorcedparents, she was looking something to fill the empty void amplified by maternalabandonment and emotionally cold father-figure. For all her book-smarts andapparent Christian values, women like Libby at that age are still vulnerable tomaking mistakes. Like someone once said – if not for 18-years old, there willbe no porn industry. I’m not talking about your regular attention-seeking skanksthat you know even in HS will end up working the pole (the steel or fleshyones. Take your pick), the dope-heads, teen moms, etc. Money plays a huge partbut for Libby and few others like her who appeared on these sites, it’s bitmore complicated. Unfortunately, she will always be marked for that one hugeblunder. But I’m afraid she will soon have company to share when themuch-touted facial recognition becomes available in near future http://www.cmu.edu/homepage/so...

Iwant to give a shout-out to owner of much maligned Dirty.com for bringing intofocus the real sickening culture of porta potty which soon will eclipseeverything we worry about porn and its repercussions. The Arab mothers haveturn their beady eyes on our girls after exhausting their depravity on Asians andEuropeans hookers (UFC quick on the trend sub-franchising the ring girls for ‘modelling’whenever they are in Dubai). It’s just matter of time before the recruitersstarts eyeing the college girls. In this economy……….

Libby is not a victim in any sense of the word, the true victims are her family. It's her right to be bonked, humiliated, have her face jizzed on, reemed in the butt, and generally treated like a slutty piece of crap for money if that is what she wants. Butt (sic)  it was it just so selfish not to have considered what hell her family would go through when the world sees what Liz will let done to her for a few bucks.  Her little sister will probably be in therapy for the rest of her life.

Yeah. I had a friend who worked as a receptionist for an escort service. She'd take the calls and be the voice of all the girls...

One day, she had to try her hardest to convince a guy that he should still have sex with her[the escort] even though it was the "Jasmine" he saw in the picture.

I would like some proof of Elizabeth's apparently ruined life.

Good point! the photos on the site were definately her but it could be a bait and switch, someone could think they are getting Libby from casting couch and then a diffeent girl show up.Does anyone know what happened to Sabrina "KC?" it looks like things got turned upside down with her ex boyfriend when he found out she was on the site. First I read she left, but now people are saying she is back in town. Also. is Stephanie Williams still at ASU, Steph got creampied on the desk

Can anyone vouch that it was really her?  It's not the first time an escort site has posted pictures of a girl that doesn't work there and then plays bait & switch with a client.

Libby was posted on phxgirls.com just the other day, her photos have now been removed and her name is no longer listed. The backroomcastingcouch just keeps following these girls around and it looks like they want to distance themselves from it. Maritza Quinlan (everyone talked about the college soccer player) is listed as a grad assistant at a college in Texas but has no photo next to her contact information, she probably got recognized by the site. Whether you love him or hate him it looks like Rick is here to stay
