EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Federal authorities say a 28-year-old West Texas juvenile probation officer is under arrest on sex trafficking charges.

In a statement released Tuesday, the federal prosecutors say 28-year-old Timothy McCullouch Jr., a juvenile probations officer in El Paso, is charged one count of sex trafficking and one of sex trafficking of a minor. He’s scheduled for a federal detention hearing Friday in El Paso.

Five other men, accused of being members of the Folk Nation/Gangster Disciples street gang, also are charged with forcing their victims by fraud or coercion to engage in sexual activities for pay in Texas, New Mexico, Nevada and Colorado between May 2012 and March 2013. They’re scheduled for trial in June

Two other men are also charged with forced prostitution charges in a separate but related indictment.
