Joseph Kaplan is a minor character in Grand Theft Auto IV.
Joseph is a Czech immigrant who lives in Hove Beach, Broker. He is a known associate of Mikhail Faustin and other Russian criminals in the area. Although he has only one conviction (in 2003 for sexual assault) he is suspected by police of running a prostitution ring in a Hove Beach Sex Shop and also making low budget pornographic movies in its basement. Several young women have filed reports against Kaplan, including prostitute Marnie Allen, claiming that they were conned into appearing in his films.
Events of GTA IV
Kaplan is seen in the mission Do You Have Protection? in which Niko Bellic shoots his employee Brett as a warning for not paying Faustin a cut of his profits from the movies he makes and he is knocked out cold with a hit to the head with a gun by Dimitri Rascalov.
