Constable Says Man Solicited Sex For Bogus Jobs

A Tyler man is arrested after trying to solicit sex from nearly two dozen teenage boys.

According to Constable Frank Creath, Leonard Robinson, 30, offered jobs to the boys at a nonexistent oil and cattle company. He even took them to cattle auctions and pretended to buy cattle.

Creath says it was an elaborate scheme, targeting teens in Bullard, Lindale, Chapel Hill, Brownsboro, Chandler, and Tyler.

Robinson is charged with solicitation and promotion of prostitution. He is currently out on bail.
