A Klein Independent School District teacher is in jail for allegedly sex trafficking students—the fourth Klein ISD educator charged this school year with sexually exploiting children.

Klein Cain High School cosmetology teacher Kedria McMath Grigsby is accused of helping her son, Roger Magee, force the troubled teens into prostitution.

Magee, 21, has been in jail since 2022 on multiple felony charges. Grigsby, 42, was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail on Monday.

Grigsby was charged with three counts of trafficking a child and three counts of compelling prostitution of children under the age of 18. Both are first-degree felonies, punishable by up to 99 years in prison.

According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, the three victims—ages 15, 16, and 17—were students and reported runaways.

“It appears Grigsby recruited troubled juveniles from local high schools by offering them a place to stay, which would be a hotel,” Gonzalez wrote in a statement posted to social media Monday.

Court documents allege that co-defendants Grigsby and Magee “participated in managing, directing, and taking profits from” a prostitution enterprise and that Grigsby transported the victims to and from a motel room used for prostitution, paid for the room, and maintained an account into which the victims paid proceeds from their forced prostitution activities.

Grigsby is being held on a $125,000 bond for each charge—totaling $750,000.

Magee is being held without bond in the Harris County Jail.

At the time he and his mother allegedly trafficked the students, Magee was out on bond for possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Magee’s bond was revoked, and he now faces seven child-trafficking charges and one count each of compelling prostitution of a child under 18 and sexual assault of a child aged 14-17, along with other felonies.

Principal Lauren Marti and Klein ISD Police Chief Marlon Runnels sent a message to Klein Cain families notifying them that Grigsby had been arrested and “immediately” placed on administrative leave.

“Klein ISD has NO intention of allowing this individual back to Klein Cain or any Klein ISD school, and we will report to all appropriate agencies at the conclusion of the investigation,” the message read.

According to Gonzalez, more victims have come forward, accusing Grigsby of attempting to recruit them while attending school.

Gonzalez said the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Human Trafficking Unit will conduct a follow-up investigation. He asked anyone with information to contact the HCSO at 346-286-2646.

Grigsby is the fourth Klein ISD teacher charged during this school year with sexually exploiting children.

In December, Epps Island Elementary teacher Matthew Stegeman was charged with indecency with a child by contact following accusations that he improperly touched a 7-year-old female student.

Also in December, Greenwood Forest Elementary School teacher Kenneth Espree was charged with five counts of possessing child pornography.

Klein Oak High School teacher Sebastian Baraldi was arrested in February and charged with five counts of possessing child porn.

Dozens of Texas educators have been charged with sex crimes involving students and other children.
