A Hialeah couple is facing multiple charges including human trafficking after filming a 16-year-old girl for a pornographic video.

HIALEAH, Fla. – A Hialeah couple, who was allegedly creating homemade pornography videos, was arrested and charged with human trafficking as well as sexually abusing, raping and exploiting a 16-year-old-girl.

Roberto Cuesta, 27, and Julietta Vado, 23, allegedly were creating videos then posting the pornography on their OnlyFans site.

However, investigators said that in April of 2020, Cuesta and Vado took a 16-year-old to the Hotel Runway Inn, Miami Springs, to have sex with her and film it.

The teenager told investigators Cuesta and Vado were aware of her age and also knew she was high on narcotics at the time.

Investigators said Vado filmed the encounter of Cuesta with the girl and then posted a clip to her social media page, promoting that the full video was available on their OnlyFans site.

“The video in question appears to depict pornographic and sexually explicit materials. Vado allegedly posted the video on her social media website and promoted (it) for sale by writing ‘new content,’ “ Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said. She said the video was posted on the website OnlyFans, where the couple sell homemade pornography.

An investigator from the Department of Children and Families told Vado that the girl was a minor, yet Vado did not remove the video, according to the investigator.

Rundle said authorities were able to locate the girl because of a tip from a healthcare worker.

“She did exactly what we always want the public to do, professionals to do. The professional immediately reported the family to the Department of Children and Families,” Rundle said.

The pair was arrested Thursday and officials said they made full confessions once in custody.

The couple faced a judge Friday and were charged with a number of crimes including human trafficking, unlawful sexual activity with a minor, unlawful use of a communications device, creating pornography with a minor, possession of child pornography, and distribution of child pornography. Both are being held without bond.

Local 10 News was told that Cuesta and Vado have made about $6,000 from their OnlyFans account. While it isn’t clear how much money they made from that specific video that included the 16-year-old girl, investigators said it was available for viewing for an extended period of time before it was taken down.
