An aspiring Ohio rapper who goes by “Thot King” is behind bars on child porn charges for reportedly casting underage girls in sexually explicit music videos. Eric Chavis, 23, was arrested on double counts of distributing child pornography following a raid on two locations, one of which was his ex-girlfriend’s residence, Thursday morning.

The investigation was triggered by a prostitution sting involving a teen girl earlier in the year. The Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force was in contact with a 17-year-old who said she appeared in videos for Chavis when she was 16.   

Chavis reportedly lured the girl to his apartment, with a promise that he’d make her into a star. Once there, she was given with alcohol and marijuana. She appeared in multiple videos and is said to have been naked or partially clothed, and appeared to be having sex in at least one recording.

Federal authorities say they found several explicit videos produced by Chavis online. He is accused of uploading the footage to porn sites and social media in addition to selling DVDs. 

Cellphones, computers and other electronics were seized during the raid that woke up Chavis’s ex-girlfriend, Casey Casto, and her father on Thursday. "The doors busted in and the guys had masks and guns," said Charles Barker. "We didn’t do anything. We were just laying there handcuffed on the floor wondering what’s going on."

Casto and Barker confirmed that Chavis used an upstairs bathroom to shoot music videos, but with adult women. "If I had known that I would have left him in the beginning,” said Casto.

Chavis faces up to 30 years if convicted.
