A high school teacher in Texas has been arrested on charges of child sex trafficking for allegedly offering to help runaway students then forcing them into prostitution.

Kedria M. Grigsby, 42, a cosmetology teacher at Klein Cain High School, was arrested Monday and charged with three counts of child trafficking and three counts of compelling prostitution of juveniles.

The arrest comes more than a year after her son, 21-year-old Roger Magee, was arrested on the same charges, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

The sheriff's office investigated in collaboration with Klein Independent School District Police, and authorities believe Grigsby assisted her son in recruiting teen runaways for prostitution.

Three known victims, ages 15, 16 and 17, were students and reported runaways, according to the sheriff's office.

"It appears Grigsby recruited troubled juveniles from local high schools by offering them a place to stay, which would be a hotel," Gonzalez said. "Additional teen victims have come forward stating that Grigsby was also attempting to recruit them while attending school."

Girgsby was booked into the Harris County Jail, where Magee has remained since his arrest, the sheriff's office said.

A spokesperson for the school district told Click 2 Houston that Grigsby "passed a state background check" when she was hired for the 2019–2020 school year. She has since been "relieved of her teaching duties."


In a letter sent to parents, Klein ISD said it has "no intention" of allowing Grigsby back.

“Let us be clear: any behavior harming children is deplorable, and we will always fully cooperate with our many law enforcement partners to ensure anyone engaging in such acts is brought to justice,” the letter read.
