SC Man Jailed in Lubbock, Accused of Enticing a Minor

LUBBOCK, TX - A federal grand jury in Lubbock indicted Travis Daron Pitts, 51, of South Carolina on Wednesday for enticement and attempted enticement of a minor.

In mid-August a woman in Lubbock County told Texas Rangers that her 11-year-old step daughter engaged in sexually inappropriate on a phone app.  

The Rangers then took the phone and assumed the girl’s identity online.  The Ranger, posing as the girl, had a conversation with Pitts via text messages that was highly sexualized. 

According to a criminal complaint, Pitts indicated he like to smoke dope and get naked with a 9-year-old girl that he described as a neighbor.

The complaint said Pitts sent messages to the girl’s phone asking for sex and sexual favors.  The complaint also said he sent a video to her phone of two underage naked girls.

Investigators were able to link the conversation to Pitts in South Carolina. 

An arrest warrant in Lubbock was issued in September.  Pitts has been held in the Lubbock County Detention Center since September 27.  

If convicted, the minimum sentenced would be 10 years.  The maximum would be life.
