On the evening of June 15, 2011 Investigators with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office were contacted by a female complainant under the age of 18 who had been propositioned for sex through the internet and text messages. The messages clearly indicated that an adult male was going to pay the underage girl fifteen hundred dollars to meet with him for a sexual encounter. Investigators took the information and arranged a meeting with the suspect but substituted a female officer for the underage girl. The meeting was carried out with the suspect while back up officers monitored the encounter with surveillance equipment. The suspect then verbally confirmed his intentions concerning the deal with the assumed juvenile and was then arrested. The suspect was then identified as Bobby Joe Sampson (23) of Westville. Sampson was transported to the Holmes County Jail where he will have his first appearance in court on the charge of procuring persons under the age of 18 for prostitution. The investigation has since revealed that the suspect had communicated with several other females offering them money for sexual favors.
