A 50-year-old man, identified as a federal agent working at a central Texas airport has been arrested for cyber sex crimes.
When arrested, Johnson identified himself as a federal agent with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and is assigned to law enforcement duties at Austin’s Bergstrom International Airport.
Johnson posted an explicit advertisement on line and received a response from some he thought was a 15-year-old girl. He sexually propositioned her and arranged to meet her so he could sexually assault her at a predetermined location.
When Johnson arrived at the meeting location, he was arrested by the Cyber Crimes Unit police officers.
The “girl” was in reality an undercover police officer with the unit.
Johnson, who is now in Williamson County Jail, now faces a second-degree felony charge for online solicitation of a minor.
He could get two to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
Greg Abbott’s Cyber Crimes Unit and Fugitive Unit have arrested over 2,800 sex offenders since he created the unit in 2003.
