Ralph Shortey Pleads Guilty To Child Sex Trafficking
Another day, another deplorable. Former Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey who was facing three child pornography charges has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors.
The Washington Post reports that Shortey will plead guilty to a child sex trafficking charge in exchange for the child porn charges getting dropped. Prosecutors claim that Shortey watched and sent explicit content involving children and had a rendezvous with a 17-year-old boy he had met through Craigslist. Investigators busted Shortey in a hotel room with the teen.
Shortey pledged his support to Cheeto back in October 2015 and was named part of Trump’s leadership team in Oklahoma. He was known for being a “family values” conservative and is known for his strong stance against illegal immigration and gun control. Prior to his arrest, he also routinely voted in favor of bills targeting members of the LGBT community—BECAUSE OF COURSE.
He now could face life in prison for his actions.
SMH, what do YOU think about another deplorable getting busted???
