Carl Ferrer, the CEO of Backpage.com is thrown in jail for pimping kids. Arrested in Houston, Texas after getting off a flight from Amsterdam.

The chief executive of a website known for the sexually oriented escort advertisements it hosts was arrested on Thursday and charged with conspiracy and pimping a minor after the authorities raided the company’s Dallas headquarters, according to court records.  Mr. Ferrer will face an extradition hearing in Texas that could return him to California to face charges. Arrest warrants have been filed against Mr. Lacey and Mr. Larkin, but officials said Thursday night that neither were in custody.
