MINNEAPOLIS – A once-well-connected Republican donor accused of wooing petite, vulnerable teenage girls with cash, booze and gifts is set to go on trial Tuesday on federal charges of sex trafficking to minors.

Anton “Tony” Lazzaro was indicted on seven counts related to “commercial sexual acts” with five minors aged 15 and 16 in 2020, when he was 30 years old. His indictment caused a political firestorm that led to the downfall of Jennifer Carnahan as chair of the Minnesota Republican Party.

His co-defendant, Gisela Castro Medina, who previously led the College Republicans chapter at the University of St. Thomas pleaded guilty to two charges last year. She is cooperating with prosecutors and will testify against him. She is due to be sentenced in August.
