Parkville Man Pleads Guilty In 'Sex Slave' Case

John Andrew Blaes, 49, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to produce child pornography and transporting a minor to engage in sex.

A Parkville man pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday to charges stemming from an incident where he and a woman allegedly enslaved a teenage girl for sex.

John Andrew Blaes, 49, of the 8600 block of Wendell Avenue in Parkville pleaded guilty to conspiracy to produce child pornography and transporting a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct, The Federal Bureau of Investigation announced in a press release.

Blaes faces a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 30 years in prison for the conspiracy charge and 10 years to life in prison for the transportation charge, followed by up to a lifetime of supervised release, the release states.

A sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 19.

Blaes and his alleged co-conspirator, 36-year-old Margaret Ellen Jones, .

At that time, Patch reported that the federal indictment against Blaes and Jones stated that the couple met online in 2010 and became involved in a sexual relationship involving "bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism."

On July 5, 2011, Blaes contacted the victim, a 15-year-old North Carolina girl, and solicited her for sex, knowing she was a vulnerable minor, according to the plea agreement. Both Blaes and Jones sent the girl pornographic pictures of themselves over the internet, the plea agreement stated.

The couple traveled from Maryland to the victim’s home to bring her to live with them in Parkville on July 22, 2011, according to the plea agreement.

After picking the victim up the couple "sexually abused the victim in the back of their vehicle, including bondage with ropes, chains, and clamps," the plea agreement said. The next day, Blaes and the co-conspirator rented a hotel room to have sex with the girl in.

Between July 22, 2011 to Nov. 20, 2011, the couple had sex with the girl multiple times per week. According to the plea agreement, Blaes would also "cut the girl and hold lemons to her injuries", and "instructed that she call him her 'master' or 'sir' and to call the co-conspirator 'mistress.'"

The girl, who was not enrolled in school, was instructed to keep the sexual conduct and her age a secret. The victim was kept in the residence or in the suspects' control at all times, the plea agreement said.

The couple used a camera to document their abuse of the girl and distributed the photos online in order to recruit other women into his lifestyle.

I live in Parkville, and these people need to be locked up For the rest of their lives, because if I ever cross paths with them they will never be able to harm another child!!!!! I feel that anyone who harms a child should receive the death penalty!!!!!!

Coming from someone who thought he knew Maggie well (well enough to have custody of her daughters now that her foolish ass is locked away) I just wish this whole thing was over. You know... the real victims of this gross man and Maggie are her children and his children. I watch her youngest crumble over and over and as much as I love these girls I would pull the switch on their mother and would love nothing more than to use John as my own personal toilet for the rest of my life. The victims of these two span much further than the original "minor in question". Nick if you're reading this you're next pal. Just as soon as I can get this girl to talk about what you did.

She talked... and suddenly you're dead? Almost a month to the day later. Nick... Yachtsman, sportsman, scumbag on wheels! You know... I really really badly wanted to post this right on your memorial page. Let everyone know that you are a gross child rapist. Reading all of those fond rememberances for you made me want to throw up!! But I'm a better man than that. Instead I'll post my feelings here... somewhere relevant, but not somewhere inappropriate. Maggie, someday you'll be able to look at these news bits about you. So I'll say things here that I can't say to you because I refuse to go out there to Towson County lock up again. Your youngest daughter is so afraid of you getting out and bothering her that she wants to change her name. You and John screwed her up so bad. Who gives a 12 year old 151?? She's told me things that I should use to bury you neck deep in pig turds forever!! You'll NEVER see this kid again. I don't care how many "I found Jesus" letters you send or how many necklaces your birth mother sends here in your name!! What you've done is so unbelievably stupid! So unbelievably wrong... When you get out and search these articles and find this I want you to think before you reach out. Is your want worth more than your girls needs? The last thing they need is to look at an old woman who raised them poorly and with little regard for their needs or safety pretending that they are her angels. Mother is the word for God on the lips of children...

And much like God did to Jobe you visited cruelty after cruelty upon your children in a bet you made with yourself. I take warm soothing comfort from knowing that you are going away for a long time. By the way the corn rows you had in when I took your daughter to visit on her 16th birthday were a nice touch... As is the Jesus talk. Do you hold communion with toilet wine and saltines?? Since you've been so free with your new religion allow me the luxury of sharing MINE. The universe seeks balance. Attracting and opposing forces all keeping perfect time in a delicate dance of push and pull. Good and evil are also opposing forces... I don't believe that you are good at all. I believe that when something bad happens people need to throw an equal amount of good on the scale. I also believe that for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. Our ancient ancestors knew this without KNOWING it. They took life to bring life replenishing rain, or "God's favor". That is why ALL themes in religion are based on opposing forces and attracting forces and all ideas, especially in expressive literature, lend toward opposing forces and attracting forces. You took innocence from your children, then compounded your error by taking another child and corrupting her. The universe seeks balance... so you got yours, Nick got his, John got his... and your girls are getting closure, safety, love, while you rot and Nick rots (unless they cremated him) and John rots.
