Brighton detectives arrest suspected child predator

Brighton detectives have arrested 32-year-old Benjamin Allen Holtry, of Fort Lupton, on a charge of Patronizing a Child Prostitute.

The charge against Holtry stemmed from an advertisement he had posted on Craigslist, which was brought to the attention of police by a concerned citizen. Police detectives, posing as the stepfather of a fictitious underage female, conversed with Holtry via email and text message for several days. Holtry ultimately made arrangements to meet with the girl on Sunday afternoon, and had negotiated terms to engage in sexual activities with her in exchange for money. Holtry was taken into custody without incident when he arrived at an apartment complex to meet with the non-existent girl.

The charges against Holtry are merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty.
