A man charged in Lubbock with promising to pay male students big bucks to pose nude and then stiffing them out of money is allegedly now preying on the strapping young men of Texas State University.
Brandon Barrows, a Texas State undergraduate, told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that Terrill Taylor, 21, offered to pay him $2,500 about two weeks ago to model for photographs wearing only underwear.
Barrows’ girlfriend “didn’t want me to do it but it was, like, a lot of money,” Barrows told the newspaper.
He left Taylor’s San Marcos apartment after he began receiving texts during the photo shoot, purportedly from a woman named Whitney from a company called KG Studios, offering more money for sexual activity, the Avalanche-Journal reported.
Taylor is awaiting trial in Lubbock County for convincing a young man to sign a fraudulent modeling contract, taking photographs of him naked and then reneging on the agreement to give him $4,000, the Avalanche-Journal reported. He ran some form of the ruse on at least five men in their early 20s, Lubbock police say. He was indicted in July on a charge of securing execution of document by deception, a state jail felony punishable by up to a year in jail.
