The Florida accountant has been accused of locking three prostitutes inside his home and keeping them as sex slaves. He posted the videos of himself raping them on the Internet.

Timothy Deegan, 53, of Gainesville, was charged with three counts of trafficking.

Deegan, who has a tax business, also has a nice home, but inside the house, investigators said they found booby traps, spy cameras and weapons to subdue the three women.

Deegan allegedly met the women on a escort website. The women agreed to have sex in exchange for cocaine. When they came to his home to provided their services, Deegan locked them up and forced them to clean his house.

He soon began prostituting the women to other men, and took the money they earned while keeping them high on cocaine.

One alleged victim contacted police after she said that she found a video of Deegan raping her while she was passed out. Deegan was arrested on a charge of sexual battery.

After being released on a $250,000 bond, officials arrested Deegan for allegedly buying and selling cocaine.

When officers arrested Deegan at his home, they found the traps. The two other women told police that Deegan supplied them with drugs before forcing them to have sex with him or other men. He then uploaded the videos of the sexual acts online, according to the complaint.

Deegan is now being held on $300,000 bail.
