Alleged pimp arrested in San Antonio in sex trafficking case

Henry Jackson, 45, accused of forcing teen into prostitution

A Ft. Worth resident has been arrested in San Antonio in connection with a child sex trafficking case.

Henry Jackson, 45, was taken into custody Thursday on charges of trafficking persons younger than 17, and sexual assault of a child.

A teen made an outcry to a Bexar County Juvenile Probation officer in December 2011 saying that Jackson forced her into prostitution, an arrest warrant affidavit stated.

The teen told investigators that she originally met Jackson in Houston in 2010. She said that she was 15-years-old at the time and a runaway, and that Jackson told her he would take care of her, the affidavit stated.

The girl said soon he began posting her pictures in ads for escorts on various internet websites, then making her work as a prostitute, the affidavit stated.

According to the teen, Jackson set her up with men in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Austin and Oklahoma, the affidavit stated.

She said he also would sexually assault her on a daily basis, and beat and sexually assault her when she didn’t earn enough money, the affidavit stated.

The girl said she finally was able to run away from him in early 2011, the affidavit stated. Jackson was arrested as the result of an ongoing investigation.
