[UPDATE] Ex-Superintendent Tried to Buy Hotel Sex with Teen Girl
New details were released at a court hearing for Ex-Kennewick School Superintendent Paul W. Rosier . Those details say Rosier tried to buy sex with two teenage girls at a hotel in Richland from an undercover agent. Rosier was released to a relative with conditions after a hearing in Yakima on Wednesday according to news reports. Rosier did not enter a plea but is expected to return to court in April and may face 15 years to life in prison. He is charged with one count of attempted child sex trafficking in U.S. District Court.
The new details in the case came in the form of a 12 page description of the events leading up to Rosier's arrest. In those documents Rosier says right after his arrest that the reason he was arrested was "because I am stupid". They also say that Rosier set up a meeting at the Hampton Inn in Richland to have sex with two teenage girls for $200. He contacted the agent, who he thought was a sixteen year old girl, through text and agreed to meet her and a thirteen year old friend for the "hook up". He was then arrested by agents in the lobby with the $200 in his pocket to pay for the girls.
Rosier is free on the conditions that he wears a GPS ankle device, stay off the internet, stay inside Washington State unless given permission, and he must turn over his passport.
