47-year-old Aloi Gregory Marshall, was sentenced to 12 weeks imprisonment on 19 October after pleading guilty to obtaining explicit services of a minor.
He had paid an underaged girl that he met on Sugarbook $1,000 to engage in intercourse with her despite being told that she wasn’t 18-years-old yet.
The identity of the victim cannot be revealed due to a court order.
In early 2021, Marshall was browsing the Sugarbook website (a website that matchmakes women with men who are willing to pay for their time) to look for companionship.
He then saw the victim’s profile on the website, claiming to be 18-years-old, and they then chatted on Sugarbook before moving their conversation onto Telegram.
Aloi asked the girl if she was 18 and she replied that she was turning 18 in December.
He then offered her $1,000 for a 2 hour session where they would have intercourse twice, and the girl agreed, and they then met in April 2021 at his home where they had intercourse.
He then left $1,000 by her bag for her services and she took the money before leaving his home.
Later that month, Aloi then reached out to her again on Telegram asking her if she wanted to meet up again, and they then tried to arrange but couldn’t find an available date.
He then contacted her twice in May asking if she was free to meet up but didn’t get a response from her.
Aloi is set to begin his jail term on 16 November after his request to defer his jail term to settle personal matters was approved.
