GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — A former schools superintendent in western Colorado has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for trying to hire what he thought was a 13-year-old child as a prostitute.
The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports Paul Rosier, a longtime educator who led School District 51 between 1989 and 1994, was sentenced Tuesday after previously pleading guilty in eastern Washington to attempted child-sex trafficking.
The 76-year-old was living in Olympia, Washington, in April 2017 when he was ensnared by undercover police officers.
Investigators say a Kennewick Police Department detective posed as a 16-year-old pimp using a texting application, and Rosier sent a message looking for a "hook up" while he was in town.
Rosier will be required to register as a sex offender when he is released from prison.
