NEW YORK — A California movie producer pleaded guilty Thursday in a prostitution case, admitting he conspired to run a business that prosecutors say supplied women to clients in the United States and England.
Dillon Jordan was allowed to enter a remote plea and pleaded guilty to conspiracy to operate a prostitution business.

U.S. District Judge John P. Cronan scheduled sentencing for Dec. 12.
A plea agreement Jordan signed with prosecutors calls for him to serve 21 months to 27 months in prison and pay a fine of $10,000 to $95,000. It also asks him to forfeit $1.4 million.
Jordan, 50, of Lake Arrowhead, Calif., was arrested last summer on charges that he used a movie production company as a front to run a prostitution ring.
Jordan is among dozens of film producers, including the 2018 film “The Kindergarten Teacher,” which featured Maggie Gyllenhaal, and the 2019 film “The Kid,” which starred Ethan Hawke.
An indictment said Jordan, from 2010 to May 2017, kept a list of women who lived in the US and performed sexual acts for his clients in exchange for money.
He also said that he coordinated with a lady from the United Kingdom, sharing and recommending clients and prostitutes. The woman was not identified by name in court documents.
