HURST (CBSDFW.COM) – One of the suspects in a Hurst child pornography case could be moved to another jail on Monday. Ricardo Lugo is one of two men who were arrested in connection with this case. He is currently sitting behind bars in Hurst, but the 17-year-old suspect may be transferred to the Tarrant County jail on Monday.

Authorities have said that Lugo was posing as a 12-year-old sixth-grade student at Hurst Hills Elementary School. The teen was allegedly enrolled by fellow suspect Randy Wesson back in August. He was there until his arrest last week. A police affidavit said that Wesson was posing as Lugo’s father and used counterfeit documents.

The Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office has officially charged Lugo with possession with intent to promote child pornography. That is a state charge. Lugo’s bond has been set at $250,000.

Authorities were tipped off about Wesson last June, but the investigation stalled because the lead detective was out on medical leave for 10 weeks.

During questioning, Wesson told police that he sexually abused more than 100 children, and admitted to possessing an estimated 42,000 illegal pornographic images. The Department of Homeland Security is now combing through various computers, phones, hard drives and DVDs which were confiscated from the 28-year-old suspect’s home last week.

Wesson also told authorities that the plan was for Lugo to help lure schoolchildren to Wesson.

Many parents with children attending Hurst Hills Elementary School had discussions with their kids over the weekend. However, as of Friday, police in Hurst said that nobody has come forward to report any possible victims. Anybody who had close contact with either Lugo or Wesson is urged to contact police.

Wesson’s initial arraignment in federal court was on Friday in Fort Worth. Wesson has been charged with possession with intent to promote child pornography, the sale and display of harmful material, and tampering with governmental record. His bond has been set at $3 million.
