Either Emmanuel Augustine shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for that big promotion to detective, or they’ve got some really good undercover officers in Harris County, Texas’ Precinct 4 Constable’s Office. How good? Good enough that they managed to net a patrol deputy with 5 years of service to Harris County, Texas’ Precinct 4 Constable’s Office by the name of Emmanuel Augustine during one of their prostitution stings.
Augustine allegedly approached an undercover female officer early Wednesday morning by Imperial Valley. Authorities say he offered to pay the female officer $10 for a sex act.
Augustine, who was off-duty at the time of the alleged incident, was partially dressed in his uniform, police said.
I admit I don’t know a whole lot about prostitution, but 10 bucks!?
Augustine was charged with solicitation of prostitution and has been suspended without pay. If convicted,he could face 180 days in jail, a $2000 fine or both. One would also hope he’d be out of a job, but there’s a reason it tends to be big news when a cop gets fired.
