Republican senator with child prostitute in motel room caught on police camera

Shortey initially tried to challenge the officers' claim that the boy was 17 years old.

This is the moment police caught a Republican state senator liaising with a teenager in a motel room.

THIS is the dramatic moment cops nabbed a U.S. state senator as he tried to bed an underage boy in a seedy hotel room.

When Shortey answers the door for the cops, he steps into the light slowly enough for the world to gaze upon his very tasteful Ephesians 5:22 shirt.

"I can't", the officer replies.

"Dad's anxious. You understand that?" "I can put you in handcuffs and throw you in the back of auto".

Moore - Confronted by Moore police at a hotel last March, then-state Sen.

A body cam worn by one of the team, footage of which was obtained by News 4, shows officers trying to gain access to the room for several minutes. The officers were initially dispatched for a welfare check.

The officers arrived at the hotel after midnight March 9 and smelled marijuana coming from the room, according to a previous story.

"I'm sorry, you guys are just freaking me out a little bit", Shortey says.

Officers ordered Shortey to exit the motel room.

Ephesians 5:22 is a Bible verse reading: "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord".

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

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 pleaded guilty to child sex trafficking last week and a sentencing hearing is pending.

Shortey became well known in the Oklahoma legislature as an anti-LGBT politician, voting on a bill that would allow businesses to refuse to serve gay customers. Until then, he will be held in jail.

Shortey is now facing between 10 years and life in federal prison. By making a deal, Shortey, 35, hopes to avoid being locked up for almost the rest of his life.

However, on 20 November he pleaded guilty to one count of child sex trafficking, with prosecutors agreeing to drop three child pornography charges against him as part of the plea.
