A former lawyer in San Antonio, Texas found himself on the opposite side of the courtroom after he was indicted in 2016 on 18 counts of sexual assault and 17 counts of compelling prostitution. Mark Benavides was handed an 80-year prison term on April 6 after he was convicted of six counts of continuous trafficking of persons.

The initial complaint against Benavides included details from 2009 and 2015 describing how he forced clients to have sex in his office, at motels, and even in courtroom conference rooms. His victims testified against him saying they felt the lawyer would not give them proper legal representation if they did not agree to have sex with him. Benavides defense attorneys argued the sexual encounters with his clients were consensual.

More of Benavides victims testified that he was supposed to represent them for prostitution cases and told them he would "get it dropped if we have sex." Benavides even videotaped some of the sexual encounters with his clients, Dallas News reported the police confiscated almost 250 DVDs of Benavides' home-made sex tapes. During the trial, some of the sex tapes were played before the court. Some of the scenes of rough sex were so graphic they causing one of the jurors to faint.

Despite his hefty sentence, Benavides isn't done going to court. He still faces another count of continuous trafficking of persons, two counts of sexual assault of a child, and one count of sexual assault. Benavides' proclivities were so legally compromising that many of his cases are under review.

Meredith Chacon, a prosecutor in Bexar County, said in a statement, "There is a potential that if he represented that many people for the 15 years that he practiced law, then there are that many cases that he has touched, and that many people that we might have to review convictions on. It’s huge."
