Lewisville is a Texas city that lies predominantly within Denton County, with a small part within Dallas County. It is considered a suburban community within the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, and its population is approximately 113,000. Prostitution activity has been well-documented throughout the region, and the problems and ancillary crimes it generates results in complaints to law enforcement agencies from residents and businesses. Among the more serious crimes associated with the local commercial sex market is sex trafficking.

Consumer level demand provides the revenue stream for all prostitution and sex trafficking, and demand reduction tactics have been used in the city.  For example, in January, 2023, a local high school teacher and coach resigned from both positions after his arrest for soliciting prostitution. The man was a teacher at Marcus High School and was also the football team’s offensive coordinator, resigned after his arrest for “solicitation of a prostitute,” according to the Lewisville Independent School District (ISD). The man’s identity was included in news reports. He was among the 46 men arrested in a massive undercover prostitution sting in Frisco. The men allegedly arranged online to meet at the hotels where they intended to pay for sex. In Texas, the solicitation of prostitution is considered a state jail felony and is punishable with up two years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
