CONROE, Texas (KTRK) — The former political director for Texas Right to Life was arrested and charged with soliciting sex from a minor earlier this month, according to county records.

Records show Lucas “Luke” Bowen was arrested and charged on Aug. 3 in Conroe.

Bowen was fired from the anti-abortion organization after being accused of soliciting sex from a minor online, according to Texas Right to Life.

“Upon being notified of (Bowen’s) arrest, his employment was immediately terminated by Texas Right to Life on Aug. 3.

As a Christian organization, we do not tolerate criminal activity or behavior contrary to biblical morality,” Texas Right to Life said in a statement sent to Eyewitness News.

Court records show that Bowen pleaded not guilty to the solicitation charge on Aug. 16 and paid his $50,000 bond.
