Police video shows former state senator after he was found in hotel room with 17-year-old

Moore police on Monday released edited body-cam videos of the officers who confronted Shortey at the Super 8 hotel early March 9. He was wearing a shirt with that references Bible verse Ephesians 5:22 and captioned with "now go make me a sandwich".

Officer: "Come out before you get me anxious".

"What we are anxious about is you having a juvenile in there", an officer says in the video.

"Responding officers found a juvenile male in a hotel room which was also occupied by an adult male".

Married Ralph Shortey, 35, can be heard arguing "can you show me that he's only 17?" after armed police swooped on his motel after a tip-off by the teen boy's anxious dad.

"We were just hanging out, talking about life and stuff", Shortey told police.

Shortey told officers he was talking to the boy "trying to help him get his life on track".

Shortey hasn't been sentenced yet, but he could see between 10 years and life in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for the the federal child sex trafficking charge. "But listen, whatever you're doing, it's a bad f*cking idea".

When officers arrived on scene, they observed Shortey, and the boy, inside the room.

"Can you show me that he's only 17?"

Police found marijuana, condoms and lotion in the Shortey's backpack in the room.

Police found an exchange of messages from Shortey on the teenager's tablet, in which he referred to him as "baby boy".

Before his arrest, Shortey was perhaps best known for introducing a bill in 2012 that would have banned the use of aborted human fetuses in food - a measure that drew widespread ridicule and was never granted a hearing in a Senate committee.

In March, Shortey was originally charged with engaging in child prostitution, engaging in child prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church and transporting a minor for the goal of prostitution in Cleveland County District Court. Those charges against Shortey were dismissed following the federal indictment. It stripped away his committee memberships, kicked him out of his Capitol office and took away his state-issued computer, according to the New York Daily News.

The Senate painted over his name in his auto park spot, scraped his name from his office door and changed the locks of his office before he had even been charged.
