Police say that nine different teens came forward about 24-year-old Paul Holpit trading weed for sexual favors. The teens ranged between 12 and 17, the criminal complaint shows.
After one of the teens came forward, 8 others followed suit to tell police about Holpit and interacting with him on social media, namely Snapchat. According to the affidavit, they all told police their story about Holpit giving them weed in exchange for sexual favors. One teen reportedly told police that he was “unpleasant, gross, small, and needed to shave.”
