EL PASO--- El Paso Police arrested a New Mexico teacher after they say he tried to solicit and meet a detective posing as a 15-year-old girl online.

Terry Jimenez, 61, of Zuni, N.M. west of Albuquerque, was arrested in the 6700 block of Edgemere Monday morning. He went there with the intention of having sex with a minor, according to police.

Police with the Internet Crimes Against Children division say Jimenez contacted the detective posing as a minor around May 19th. At one point, he video chatted and exposed himself to the detective, according to a complaint affidavit.

Then Jimenez made plans to meet the girl Monday morning, said police.

Police, along with the El Paso FBI, collaborated in the investigation.

Jimenez is being charged with Online Solicitation of a Minor and Online Solitication of a Minor with Intent for Sexual Contact.

He is currently being held on a $50,000 bond.

why are there so many perverts in this country? what ever happened to decency? and why aren't these pervs lockup for good or even executed when clearly they are a threat to society.

It's comical that people are getting all high and mighty at the thought of a grown man having sex with a 15 year old....when there are 12 year olds getting pregnant by their boyfriends. I don't think what this man did was "disgusting"...but it was wrong and as a teacher and an adult he knows better. I agree with the gentleman who said if that were MY 15 (I don't have one,mine is only 9)....but if it were my kid I would want this man behind bars and known as a child molestor.

SO.. what was he doing near the "child's" house 4 hours away from his own. He knows the "girl," more than likely will be left alone since she's in summer vacation.

What was his intent? Off site, off semester tutoring?

pffft

WAKE UP!

We know Terry and work with him and love his family. We can never see him doing this. He is a loving, caring and compassionate teacher.He fights for the rights of his kids and their education. He and his family are in our prayers!!

why don't you give him a medal, and an award for pervert of the year.

I guess you didn't see the broadcast of his gentils. Most predators (history has shown) are "loving, caring and compassionate" on the outside and this is what they do when people that trust them are doing behind closed doors. Wake up.

You need a reality check teacher, it is known that men who pay to much attention to children are the ones that you should watch for. A lot of the molesters put themselves in a place where they have constant contact with children. They lead a healthy family life but lust after young girls or boys. This better be an eye opener for you. This happens thousands of times a year, you should know better as a teacher.

Who are you to say wrongful things. Please humor me cause I know that you all will say that you live perfect lives. I have known the Jimenez family since I was little. They are wonderful people. So he messed up...GUESS WHAT PEOPLE HE IS HUMAN. We all make a mistake and unfortunetly he got caught doing something stupid. But yet you people think you have the right to degrade him.

Yes, U_cant_judge, everyone does make mistakes but everyone doesn't flash themselves to 15-yr olds on a webcam.

I am a dad to a fifteen year old and if he was doing this to my 15 year old he would wish for jail. There are a lot of people that liked serial killers before they found out they were serial killers. I have all the sympathy in the world for his family but what he did is inexcusable and disgusting. Makes me wonder what he has done that we don't know about. Do you have a fifteen year old, has he's been alone with her. And it is fortunate he got caught, you make me sick to my stomach.

No one lives perfect lives, but most peoples mistakes do not include pedophilia. He's not some young kid charged with DWI. He's an educator, someone children should be able to trust. I'm sure you think you know him, but despite your personal relationship with him; if he is guilty, he deserves the maximum penalty, especially because of his position.

Yes, this is disgusting and appauling. We can't even trust teachers that we are told have had background checks. This can't be his first offense there has to be something wrong with this perv for him to expose himself or even speak to someone underage. Throw the book at him, twice.

It IS disgusting. We don't have to be distrustful of everyone though - what a miserable life! We have to be watchful and discerning. Yes, the world is full of ugliness. It is also filled with beauty and kindness - we need to learn how to distinguish between the two in order to avoid the former.

That is just disgusting. Sick people out there, and now we know not to trust ANYONE. The least expected are the most intrigued.
