  • Former Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey faces a prison sentence

Officers can be heard discussing a strong smell of marijuana outside the room, and instruct those inside they are there to check on their welfare, and that they aren't going away until they come out.

"You said you're getting dressed?"

"Dad's anxious. You understand that?" Shortey asks one of the officers.

Officers additionally found backpacks with condoms and lotion in them and found a Kindle Fire with a text conversation between Shortey and the juvenile that detailed Shortey promising to pay the juvenile for sex. "He's 17", the officer replied.

Shortey, who served as chair of President Donald Trump's campaign in 2016, can be seen wearing a T-shirt saying "make me a sandwich" with the Biblical quote from Ephesians 5:22. "Now you're getting me anxious, show me your hands". "I can put you in handcuffs and throw you in the back of (the) auto".

Shortey also admitted that there were drugs in the motel room, despite the fact that he spoke openly as a state senator about how adults shouldn't do drugs in front of minors. The verse references a wife's submission to her husband and God.

Shortey wasn't arrested that evening, but the call spawned a wide-ranging investigation that lead to Shortey being charged with child prostitution in Cleveland County, eventually leading to his resignation from the Oklahoma State Senate.

Shortey: "Just hanging out, talking about life".

Shortey told officers he was talking to the boy "trying to help him get his life on track".

In exchange for Shortey's plea, USA prosecutors agreed to drop three child pornography counts against him at his sentencing hearing, which is expected to occur within the next 90 days. Shortey pleaded guilty to child sex trafficking last week and a sentencing hearing is pending.

Officer: "Getting high with a young kid, whatever, is a bad idea".

"What sense does it make for me to lie to you?" the officer asks.

He goes on to say that if Shortey wanted to get high by himself or "if you've got things you need to figure out - you need to figure that out".

The Trump-supporting former Senator is now awaiting sentencing, and could face life imprisonment and a maximum fine of £185,000. No matter if they're 17 or 20.
