SHARE Houston constable nailed in prostitution sting his own agency set up

File this one in the dumb constable/criminal category, and the story goes something like this:

Emmanuel Augustine, 29, had been a deputy with the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office in Houston for four years.

That same precinct was working a prostitution sting.

According to reports, Augustine was off duty, but still wearing his pants — because some ladies do like a man in uniform — when he solicited the undercover officer for sex.

Following his identification, the administration was notified and responded to the arrest location. Emmanuel Augustine was placed on immediate administrative suspension without pay pending an investigation into the incident.

He was released on his own recognizance, and if convicted on the Class B misdemeanor, could face up to a $2,000 fine and jail time not to exceed 180 days.
