17 Year Old Enrolls In 6th Grade To Recruit Child P0RN Victims.
A 17-year-old Texas boy has been arrested for posing as a sixth grader at an elementary school. He enrolled himself there where he allegedly tried to recruit child P0RN victims.
Ricardo Javid Lugo was taken into custody while he was attending class at Hurst Hills Elementary School. According to police the man was allegedly working with 28-year-old Randy Ray Wesson who was arrested at his home in nearby Fort Worth, Texas. When entering the home authorities say they discovered large amounts of child P0RN.
According to Ricardo’s arrest affidavit obtained by local NBC affiliate, KXAS TV, detectives said Wesson told investigators they would find roughly “42,000 child images on his computer, thumb drive, phone and SD card.” Wesson also allegedly admitted to sexually abusing more than 100 children between the ages of 7 and 14.
The arrest shocked school administrators and parents who question how a 17-year-old was able to enroll in an elementary school and go unnoticed as a sixth grader for roughly 3 months.
“It’s kind of scary,” Wale Aridegbe, whose second-grade son attends the elementary school, told the news station.“I’m still trying to wrap my head around it.”
