Katy man arrested for allegedly running year-long sex trafficking ring out of his home



A Katy man has been arrested for allegedly operating a sex trafficking ring out of his home for more than a year. The arrest was part of a multi-agency effort called “Operation Freedom.”

Naazir Jackson, 29, from the Cinco Ranch South Lake subdivision, was arrested Nov. 10 and charged with compelling prostitution, a first-degree felony, and promotion of prostitution, a third-degree felony.


Three victims were rescued in the operation.

The investigation began more than a year ago, when the first victim came forward, according to Craig Priesmeyer, assistant district attorney for the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office.

According to the arrest warrant, the victim believed she was in a relationship with Jackson after meeting him on popular dating app Tinder. Shortly after they began dating, the victim said, Jackson started promoting her for prostitution on Instagram, Tinder, Pornhub, Facebook and Adult Friend Finder.



The victim stated that in the span of two months, Jackson earned more than $7,500 by prostituting her. The suspect used his personal residence as a hub for this activity, Thompson said.

Thompson noted that the investigation took more than a year because human trafficking cases require careful timing.

“Unfortunately, although our initial desire is to always rush in and end everything, in this case, because it’s so intricate and involved as with most human trafficking cases, it takes us a while,” he said.

The operation was a joint endeavor between the Fort Bend County Constable’s Office Precinct 3, the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office and the Community Volunteer Fire Department.
