Deputies: Dover man used mentally disabled teen as prostitute, raped another

DOVER — A 23-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on charges that he solicited a mentally disabled teenager to act as a prostitute and raped another.

Between August and March, Mario Albert Laguna-Guerro, of 4511 Last Chance Lane in Dover, drove a 17-year-old mentally disabled girl to various locations and allowed seven to eight men to have sex with her, according to an arrest affidavit.

He charged the men $20 to $25 for each sexual act. Deputies said Laguna-Guerro later told them he deposited some of the proceeds into a Mexican bank account.

He also asked the 17-year-old girl to get mentally disabled classmates to act as prostitutes, but none obliged, the affidavit states.

On Jan. 26, deputies said Laguna-Guerro raped one of the students, who was 19, with the 17-year-old watching.

Laguna-Guerro was arrested at 10 a.m. Wednesday, charged with sexual battery, procuring a minor for prostitution and deriving support from prostitution proceeds. He remains at the Hillsborough County Jail without bail.
