A former executive director of the Washington Association of School Administrators has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for soliciting sex from underaged girls.
The Tri-City Herald reports that Paul W. Rosier, 76, who also is a former superintendent of the Kennewick (Wash.) School District, admitted to having sex with hundreds of prostitutes over the years.
He was arrested in April 2017 for trying to arrange sex with two teenaged girls.
Rosier pleaded guilty in June in federal court to attempted child sex trafficking with a victim younger than 18.
He admitted to probation officials that he had sex with hundreds of escorts and prostitutes over the years, and paid tens of thousands of dollars for their services.
Rosier had arranged to meet with two girls, ages 13 and 16, at a Richland, Wash., hotel in April 2017, but when he went there, he was met by undercover police who arrested him.
Rosier was superintendent of the Kennewick School District for 12 years. He left that job in 2006 to work as executive director for the Washington Association of School Administrators. He retired in 2014.
