Sergio Reyes, a self-employed process server who has allegedly been acting as a pimp out of the El Paso County Courthouse, is a former El Paso County Sheriff's Office detective.
El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Angelica Becerra said that Reyes was a Level 10 detective within the sheriff's office.
He was hired Aug. 15, 1977 and left the department on Dec. 31, 1996 due to re-organization within the department.
Becerra would not elaborate on what the re-organization was.
Reyes, 59, is being held on an $800,000 bond.
El Paso County Sheriff's officials' month-long undercover operation, revealed Reyes was allegedly paying women to have sex with him and with other people.
Sheriff's deputies arrested Reyes on suspicion of pimping women who were trying to file for divorce at the courthouse.
Sheriff's officials said they believe Reyes may have victimized other women and are asking anyone with more information to come forward.
According to the complaint affidavit, Reyes allegedly offered to help the women process their divorce paperwork for $500. If they needed help paying he would tell them he would charge $100 in exchange for a sexual favor.
The affidavit states that the friend was actually Reyes himself. In one incident Reyes allegedly took a woman into a room at the law library of the courthouse and sexually assaulted her.
