Internet porn sting in Walters nabs 15

Walters, OK--Four Fort Sill Soldiers and an Oklahoma preacher are among 15 men facing charges for internet porn. They're accused of making lewd or indecent acts with minors through the internet.  Authorities say all of them intended to have some type of sexual encounter with the minors.

But all of them were stopped in their tracks because of the Walters Police Department's reserve officers. Walters Police Chief Mike Carter says his reserves acted like under-aged girls and built relationships with the men over the internet.

He says the men actually showed up at different locations, carrying bags filled with drugs, alcohol, sex toys, cameras and more---evidence they were intending to have some sort of encounter with the girls.

Carter says when he started this investigation he never dreamed so many men would be lured to the small town walters.  "You see it happening in the big cities, but don't realize it's happening right in your own backyard."

So far, the men that have been arrested come from all walks of life.

They're young, old, businessmen, professional men, soldiers--and even a preacher.

One of the men in the group was even caught bringing two baggies of crystal meth with him . Authorities say he intended to give it to the teen.

5 of the men were arraigned Friday in Cotton County District Court.  All are being held on bond; some up to $100,000.  All of them face up to 20 years in prison, if convicted.

    An elementary school teacher in Tulsa says her salary has left her so short on cash that she had to panhandle for classroom supplies. Teresa Danks has been an educator since 1996. She says that while it's never been a financially rewarding profession, lately is been getting even harder to get by. She makes around $35,000 a year, with about $3,000 being spent out of pocket for school supplies.
