Hulet pled guilty in January to one count of Soliciting a Child for Prostitution and one count of Attempted Abuse or Neglect of a Child Involving Sexual Exploitation. He was charged with having solicited an undercover HEAT detective posing as a 17-year-old female and arranged a meeting to pay for sex. During this same time, Hulet was discovered to have been soliciting numerous other females over Facebook, two of which were later identified by HEAT detectives to be juvenile females aged 15 and 17, respectively. Ultimately, Hulet was arrested before he could victimize a real child.
At Hulet’s sentencing hearing, DDA Cameron argued that the defendant’s conduct in recruiting and soliciting several juveniles to engage in prostitution put the children of this community at incredible risk and warranted a term of imprisonment.
