A man in Pennsylvania who forced women to be his sex slaves has now been convicted of serial rape and human trafficking charges that could put him behind bars for the rest of his life. 31-year-old Seth Mull was accused of assaulting four women in the Bethlehem area and in Philadelphia in a two-month rape spree in 2017. A jury convicted the man on December 7 on a staggering 30 of the 36 charges that were placed against him after he was arrested in October. The judge also said that Mull faces a sentence that could be more than a hundred years.

The Daily Mail reported that the women who accused the man said that he had claimed them as his property after he used his charm to bait the unknowing victims into a dark, and dangerous world of sexual exploitation. The authorities said that Mull would lure women on social media and then attack them in person. He would then force them to be his "sex slaves" while using violence and drugs to gain control.

According to The Morning Call, Mull would force the women he entrapped into becoming prostitutes and porn actors. He had also forced them to take cocaine and methamphetamine, raped them, choked them, and even threatened to kill them or their families if they didn't comply with his orders.

A search conducted by the authorities of Mull's computers and his phones found that he has visited multiple websites for human trafficking and sexual slavery. 

The authorities also found a written "sex slave contract" and, according to court documents, as well as multiple pornographic videos and photos that were recorded with his phone. In some of the cases, the prosecutors said that Mull even sold the victims to other men. The defense is going along with the argument that the man only had consensual sex with the women.

Ever since the initial charges against Mull were made public, several other women have contacted the authorities to lodge assault, forced pornography, and sex trafficking allegations against Mull.

Officers from the Bethlehem PD said that they have been in touch with law enforcement in a few other cities from Pittsburg to San Diego all the way to Honolulu where Mull was charged in 2017 after a young woman accused him of rape and strangulation. The case was dismissed because the accuser did not move forward with it. 

Mull has been charged with raping four other women last year in hotel rooms in Bethlehem; Hanover Township, Northampton County; and Philadelphia. Authorities say he is suspected of preying upon women across the country, starting when he was as young as 13.
