A teacher and her son were arrested for soliciting students into prostitution

KLEIN, TX – A high school cosmetology teacher and her adult son are facing serious charges after being accused of recruiting students, who were reportedly runaways, into prostitution. The mother-son duo, identified as 42-year-old Kedria Grisby and 22-year-old Roger Magee, have been slapped with three counts each of child sex trafficking and compelling prostitution.

Grisby, who taught at a Klein Independent School District high school, is believed to have aided her son Magee in recruiting students from her school. As part of the alleged scheme, Grisby reportedly provided the students with a hotel room to live in. Court records suggest that the hotel room was paid for by Grisby.

Evidence presented in court included text messages between Magee and one of the victims, discussing a payment for prostitution services via Zelle. According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the victims, aged 15, 16, and 17, were all students at the school where Grisby taught and were identified as runaways.

The shocking revelations have led to other students coming forward, alleging that Grisby attempted to recruit them while they were attending school. In response to the allegations, the school district informed families of the situation and stated that Grisby was immediately placed on administrative leave upon receiving the information from law enforcement.

The school district has made it clear that Grisby will not be returning to the high school or the district, emphasizing that the safety of their students is their utmost priority. The district also pledged to fully cooperate with law enforcement to ensure justice is served.

Magee was taken into custody in November 2022 and remains behind bars. Grisby, who was held on a $750,000 bond, is prohibited from contacting any witnesses or having unsupervised contact with minors as part of her release conditions. The investigation into the matter, conducted by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Trafficking Unit, is ongoing.
