Seattle Porn Scammer Matt Hickey, Accused of Rape, Pleads Guilty to Three Felonies

It sounds like whatever prison sentence he receives will be well deserved, but I'm not sure how I feel about the $300,0000 fine. Whenever I read about this deal I'm reminded of the scene from Buffy the Vampire Slayer where Giles introduces his girlfriend to Buffy and the girlfriend says "Wow, you really do know the Slayer. I thought that was just something you made up to impress me so I would sleep you." In hetero world isn't it accepted practice for guys to invent grandiose falsehoods to impress women they're trying to get into bed? Don't women kind of expect that kind of thing?

The fucked up thing is that if Hickey had actually published the videos, even as some amateur on fetlife or wherever, his fake porn tryouts would have been actual porn and therefore legal. Ain't that weird?

Let this tawdry tale be a lesson to gullible nitwits and sleazy predators everywhere.

@1 you're concerned about how to distinguish Hickey from bar bragging, so it might be unfair to fine him, but he should go to prison? Is this auto-generated filler produced by blending up comments?

@4 Hickey is getting fined $300,000 for lying about being a porn producer to women he wanted to sleep with. He's also going to jail, but not for lying about being a porn producer, the prison sentence is for other stuff he did.

Bye Matt

I never imagined an outcome like this when i first read the stranger piece about him. Excellent work, Sydney.

@2. No. No, that is not true at all. What is it with people and this case? If he published the videos -- which there were none because it was a "test" not a filmed audition -- it would have changed nothing about the fraud that he perpetrated, and it certainly would have changed nothing about the rapes (indecent liberties whatever) he committed.

Publishing the (non-existent) videos would not have made Deja a real person. It would not have made his email address an actual company. It would not have made his promises to provide work actually realizable. It would not have made the drinks and pressure he pushed disappear. It would have in any way made his scam not a scam. He never said he was a porn producer, his made-up woman working for a made-up company was going to promote the women. Hickey's role was to photograph them for their portfolio's and have sex with them to prove they could have sex with a stranger as a requirement for said promotion.

And it certainly would not have made having sex next to the vomit of an incapacitated woman legal. Which is what this article is about. Him being guilty of that.

@1:

And this is why you will never, ever get laid again.
11
also @2 "If he would have just done something legal instead of something illegal then what he didn't wouldn't have been illegal. Ain't that weird?"

Great work, Sydney, in helping to bring this motherfucker down.
13
@1/2 Drop off the face of the earth, posthaste.
14
I was going to right a comment mocking @2’s understanding of the case, but others beat me to it. @2’s understanding of consent and fraud is no better than Hickey’s! Rape culture much?
15
Good riddance.
17
LOL. So even the court says it wasn't rape.

@17. Shut up, Matt.

Can we all remember that this creep was best friends with "feminist" Lindy West. She claims to have no idea what he was doing but her comments to him on twitter indicate she was aware he was sexually deprived at best.
20
Depraved ; lindy west knew he was sexually deprived at best #lindywest knew. Google this fake feminists comments on twitter to her bff Matt hockey.
21
Ps good job Sydney on helping this piece of garbage get locked away even for a few years. Personally he should be gone for life I think
22
@13 how about you drop off the face of the earth instead? You've already got the dropped-face part of it down.
23
Well done, Sydney. I do have to ask why his employment by the Stranger was not mentioned.

@22: So far you’ve peaked at defending a serial rapist, let’s see how far you can sleaze yourself up on the slog.

Ayn, if that stale pudding you call a brain actually worked, you'd be literate. Instead your a waste of oxygen and I'm sure your own family members will be embarrassed by your presence at thanksgiving, if they haven't lost your phone number already. But I'll give you this olive branch: Look up the word "Defend" in the dictionary and report back to me. I've even provided a link. Take that little computer accessory you have and move the "cursor" (it looks like an arrow, usually) over the word, then "click". If you're on a PC, use the "left button", or if it's a macintosh, there is only one button, click that. From there, you may need to use your eyeballs and understand basic words to come to an understanding, but pretty sure you have SIRI do all that for you nowadays.

OK, but serious talk: get your ego in check. Your a selfish pile of shit

You could just not make these unhinged “what if”s about a serial rapist. If he wasn’t a serial rapist, he wouldn’t be a serial rapist.

Also, you’re still wrong and creepy.
