Authorities say the crime happened inside Hurst Hills Elementary School. It was there where Lugo posed as a 6th grade student.

Richard Howard is the father of a 2nd grader at the school. “It is scary especially as a father when you have an eight-year-old son. If it happens here, it can happen anywhere.”

Authorities first arrested Lugo in November, along with the man who posed as his father, 28-year-old Randy Wesson. Police say Wesson enrolled Lugo in the school using phony documents.

Investigators have charged both men with Possession of Child Pornography, claiming Wesson had more than 42,000 explicit photos on his computer.

Hurst Assistant Police Chief Richard Winstanley has worked on many cases during his 40 years in law enforcement. “This is probably one of the oddest ones [cases]. Nothing really surprises anymore,” he said. “But to think about what those two did to accomplish what they wanted to do… it’s a pretty twisted sense of criminality right there.”

Police say the victim’s parents came forward recently.

HEB ISD spokeswoman Judy Ramos says the case should serve as an important reminder to parents. “This needs to be something parents can talk to their children about to try to ascertain information that might be valuable in this case.”

Father Richard Howard says he and his wife have already spoken with their son. “Since he’s been going to school, we’ve had our good touch, bad touch talk.”

Police say they’re concerned more victims could come forward.

A judge increased Lugo’s bond from $250,000 to $300,000. The teenager remains in the Tarrant County jail.
