Honolulu Cop Sexually Exploited Children, Children Trafficked into the Sex Trade

When he was a cop in Honolulu, Mason Jordan sexually exploited children, trafficked children into the sex trade and cyberstalked a woman by threatening to send her nude photos to loved ones, according to filings. by the Federal Court.

Arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico on June 2, Jordan was charged with eight counts by a federal grand jury in Hawaii, including sexual exploitation of a child; coercion and inducement of a minor to engage in prostitution; sex trafficking; and cyberbullying.

“The sexual exploitation of children is one of the most heinous crimes we prosecute and deservedly carries severe criminal penalties,” Clare E. Connors, U.S. District Attorney for Hawaii, said in a prepared statement. “When, as here, the abuser is a law enforcement officer who has sworn to protect the most vulnerable members of the community, including our children, the crime is all the more egregious.”

Jordan’s lawyer in New Mexico has not returned Coffee or Die Magazine requests for comments. If convicted, Jordan, 31, faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in federal penitentiary on each of three counts of sexual exploitation; a mandatory minimum of 10 years behind bars for each of the two counts of coercion and incitement and the two counts of sex trafficking; and up to five years in prison for cyberstalking.

The case against Jordan appears to have started in 2020. During a search of his police station locker in May 2020, investigators discovered two memory cards, each containing secretly recorded images of a person known to court records only under the name “Underage Victim 1”.

Prosecutors say the nude videos were created in 2016 using a hidden bedroom camera. In both videos, Jordan’s face was allegedly captured as he retrieved the camera after the child exited the room.

In July 2017, Jordan also used a cellphone to take sexually explicit photos of the sleeping victim, prosecutors say. Investigators found the footage after seizing a laptop from his apartment on May 22, 2020, according to court documents. A distinctive scar on Jordan’s wrist would have helped them pin him in the footage.

Jordan edited portions of the photographs and used them in an online harassment campaign targeting the victim, including demanding more nude images of her and threatening to call child protective services officers, according to investigators.

“[REDACTED], you better talk to me, ”read a message in the court documents. “I’ll make sure you lose everything. Moreover, I’m sure [REDACTED] does not want to see all the photos and videos I have. He might even wonder if your baby is even his. . . You just have to answer. . . I know you don’t want the CPS finding out all the dirt on you too. . . .”

In early 2020, Jordan began impersonating the victim on the social media platform Instagram to solicit another child – “Minor Victim 2” – to work as a prostitute, prosecutors say.

Investigators suspect Jordan made up a fictitious pimp he called “Joey” and urged the second victim to call him and lie about being 18. Jordan then allegedly posed as the pimp on an internet text messaging service, chatting with the victim about the prices and arranging to meet her near a restroom in a public park.

Prosecutors say Jordan knew she was underage because he looked her up in a police database. He met her at the park, assaulted her, then gave her money, according to court records.

Investigators say he used the same scheme in early 2020 to lure ‘underage victim 3’ into prostitution. He met her at a mall, assaulted her and gave her money, prosecutors say.

After filing a police report detailing his allegations, Jordan accessed the case using his Honolulu Police Department credentials and then attempted to delete the Instagram account, according to court records.

In April 2020, Jordan again took to Instagram to impersonate “Minor Victim 1” so he could contact a student he had met years earlier when she was underage, according to federal documents.

The cop allegedly asked her to text a number linked to the internet texting app and then started harassing her from a different number on the same app.

Prosecutors say Jordan sent a cropped but graphic photo taken when the woman was a child to her and two of her adult friends before threatening to send it to her family as well.

“As long as you do exactly what I say, everything will work out in your favor and you have nothing to worry about,” the cop reportedly wrote in a text message. “This conversation is between you and me ONLY. I have some very revealing photos and videos of you. If you don’t do what I say, it will go all over the internet and to all of your friends on your Instagram. Have we a deal?. If I don’t get a response from you, I’ll assume you’re ignoring me and I’ll release everything. Just remember to do as I ask and you’ll be fine. I’ll send you some or t send some too… I just want more pics of you… That’s it… Then I’m gone forever… But if you tell someone about our arrangement. the whole internet will see. Including all your friends and family.
