In May 2008, an associate professor of military science who worked at Seattle University’s Reserve Officer Training Corps was arrested in Canon City and charged with several crimes related to soliciting a child for prostitution.  The man had flown to Colorado to meet what he thought was an underage girl with whom he had been corresponding online. He had actually been corresponding with a Colorado law enforcement team that focuses on internet crimes against children.  The man was held in the Fremont County Detention Center while police investigate eight offenses, including soliciting for child prostitution, police said.
