A former Rosebud Lott middle school teacher who had already been arrested earlier in an on line prostitution sting operation was back in the McLennan County Jail on new charges, this time for trafficking of a person.
The arrest affidavit filed in the case contained information from a McLennan County Sheriff’s Department investigator who had recovered hidden camera video during a raid on a massage parlor.
Deputies were attempting to identify “clients” who had received sexual services in the parlor and while observing the videos, an attack on one of the masseuses was discovered caught on the video.
The affidavit said the investigator was reviewing video dated October 30, 2017 when he observed a man getting an hour long massage, followed by a sexual service.
He said the video saw the man pulling the woman’s pants down and shirt up, then biting her causing what appeared to be pain.
He said as the man continued touching the woman’s body she was attempting to get away, but was thrown face down on the bed as the struggle continued.
The man’s picture was released to the public in hopes of getting an identification.
When he got word that the man might be Jared James, the investigator said in the affidavit that he knew that James had been arrested before and reviewed the mug shot from the earlier arrest.
He was booked back into the McLennan County Jail on a charge of trafficking of a person on Monday and posted $10,000 and was released at noon on Tuesday.
Thirty-two-year-old Jared L. James had earlier been charged with in connection with a four-week “john suppression” operation run by the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office.
James was nabbed when he responded to what he thought would be a meeting with a prostitute only to find that it was a sheriff’s deputy he had been communicating with.
He was one of forty seven men arrested in the earlier operation.
At the time of his first arrest he had been teaching 7th and 8th grade math at Rosebud-Lott.
