Lancaster, TX - A Lancaster man is behind bars after a 15-year-old Irving girl said he forced her into prostitution. Richard Lee Dixon, 35, was booked into the Irving jail
Wednesday on charges of trafficking of a child and compelling prostitution. His bail is set at $250,000.
Irving police said the girl, a runaway, was found by Dallas police this month after she escaped Dixon.
The girl told authorities she met Dixon in early November and that he eventually forced her to work as a prostitute.
Police think there may be other victims and ask that anyone with information about the case call police at 972-273-1010.
