Spring Branch Man Arrested Again for Trafficking a Second Juvenile Victim
A 58-year-old Spring Branch man arrested Friday by New Braunfels police for sex trafficking a juvenile victim was arrested again today by U.S. Marshals for allegedly sex trafficking a second teen.
Marc Stephen Jamison was arrested without incident at a gas station in the 1800 block of State Highway 46 West in New Braunfels.
He was transported to Comal County Jail and booked on a charge of Trafficking of Persons, a first-degree felony. Bond was set at $500,00. He remains in jail.
“As in the previous case, the suspect is now accused of contacting a second juvenile female victim using a social media account, then meeting the victim in person, transporting them to an undisclosed location, and paying the victim for conducting a sexual relationship with him,” New Braunfels Police Department said in a statement.
The Comal County District Attorney’s office has filed a motion to increase Jamison’s bond on the initial charge.
Jamison was arrested without incident Friday after arriving for what he allegedly believed was a meeting with a juvenile female victim he also met through a social-media account. He was released on a $100,000 bond after surrendering his passport and other documents.
At that time New Braunfels police detectives believed there were other victims, but said specific details were being withheld to protect the integrity of the investigation and the validity of victims that investigators believed would come forward.
Police identified the first victim as a 16-year-old female from New Braunfels. Crimes against her began in May. Crimes against the second victim occurred in 2021 when the victim was 15 years old.
Police ask anyone who believes they are a victim or knows of a potential victim to call New Braunfels Police Det. Richard Goff at 830-221-4167.
