‘Hideous Crimes’: Youth pastor, firefighter and high school teacher among nearly 50 arrested in Texas prostitution stabbing

A high school teacher, youth pastor, hockey player and volunteer firefighter were among 46 men arrested in an undercover operation in Texas Yahoo News.

Nearly a dozen law enforcement agencies reportedly participated in the two-day operation Jan. 12-13, 2023 in Frisco, Texas.

The men in question would make arrangements online to go to the Hilton in Southlake Town Square or the Hyatt Regency Hotel with the intention of then soliciting prostitution.

In Texas, inciting prostitution is a criminal offense punishable by up to two years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.

“The victims of these heinous crimes are being treated like commodities to be used to make as much money as possible, as quickly as possible,” he said County Tarrant Sheriff Bill Waybourn.

“Victims of human trafficking are the scourge of the earth and we will continue to target those responsible for trafficking and those who solicit sex from them,” Waybourn added.

The teacher from Marcus High School in Texas also worked as the football team’s offensive coordinator. The teacher reportedly quit after being placed on administrative leave, according to the Lewisville Independent School District. However, there is reportedly no evidence linking the teacher to any illegal activities with students.

“We have no information as to the circumstances of his arrest involving students,” said Amanda Brim, the school board’s communications officer.

A youth pastor from Forth Worth, Texas, was also arrested, according to the Tarrant County Sheriff.

In addition to the volunteer firefighter and the semi-professional hockey player, an operations manager from a major Texas hospital network was also arrested.

An HSI representative said the government agency hopes to have disrupted traffickers’ activities.

Victims will be connected to “lawyers and resources they need,” the spokesman added.

Homeland Security Investigations Dallas highlights the sting as part of its Blue campaigna national public awareness campaign designed to educate the public on how to recognize signs that human trafficking is occurring.

In May 2022 HSI and other government officials 70 missing children rescued in El Paso, Texas, as part of a three-week anti-trafficking operation.
