8/12/2013 – Edmond, OK — A Oklahoma man arrested in Edmond for the sexual human trafficking of a pregnant teenager has pleaded guilty in Oklahoma County.
JohnTV was the first to break the story of the investigation and arrest of 21-year-old Joshua Ray Hudson back in May of this year.
According to police reports and court records, undercover officers received information that a pregnant and missing 16-year-old female was being pimped out on the website Backpage.com.
After confirming the teen’s identity, undercover officers began communicating with her, pretending to be a ‘John’ looking for sex.
Officers were directed to meet-up with the teen at the Broadway Suites at 1305 S. Broadway Ave. in Edmond on the evening of May 9, of this year.
The pregnant teen was taken into protective custody after she allegedly solicited an undercover officer for $140 for specific sexual activity.
Prior to the young girl’s arrest, investigators in the motel parking lot identified two males that appeared to be with the teen girl.
Officers approached the males and identified one as Hudson and the other was not identified in court records because he was a minor.
Records indicate that Hudson later admitted to being the girl’s ‘boyfriend’ and that he had posted the ads online, set her price for sexual activity and collected the money she was paid by responding ‘Johns.’
Hudson had several hundred dollars in cash on him and a credit card that was used to pay for the online ads.
Hudson was formally charged in Oklahoma County with felony human trafficking on May 20, of this year.
On July 3rd Hudson pleaded guilty and was ordered to complete in-custody RID and his sentencing was delayed until April 4, 2014.
Hudson has listed his residence in the past as in the 1200 block of Shannon Lane (Waterloo and Phillips area) in Edmond. However, his most recent court record shows his former residential address as Willow Cliff Apartments in Warr Acres (across the street from Putnam City Original high school).
In a related story, It was uncovered by local bloggers with TheLostOgle that the FBI and local law enforcement had linked a reporter with the Oklahoman as a ‘John’ who had previously paid to have sex with the teen in this article.
Zeke Campfield was until June a trusted reporter with Oklahoma’s largest newspaper, the Oklahoman.
Campfield first made headlines after he allegedly was seen taking photos up the skirt of high school students at a graduation ceremony.
According to court documents, Campfield allegedly paid the pregnant teen $220 for sex at his residence.
Campfield has not yet been charged with any crime related to prostitution.
