The New Braunfels Police Department has secured the arrest of a Spring Branch man on a charge of Trafficking of Persons (Texas Penal Code 20A.02), a first degree felony. Based on evidence collected by the New Braunfels Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, a Comal County Judge issued a warrant on Friday (10-21-22) for 58-year old Marc Stephen Jamison of Spring Branch.
Jamison was arrested Friday without incident after he arrived in New Braunfels for what he believed was a meeting with a juvenile female victim that he had met using a social media account. Jamison is accused of transporting the victim to an undisclosed location and paying the victim for conducting a sexual relationship with him since May of this year. Following his arrest, Jamison was transported to the Comal County Jail where bond was set at $100,000. As of this release, Jamison has posted bond and, by order of the judge, he was also forced to turn over his passport and other documents before being released from jail.
The investigation into this case is ongoing, and Jamison potentially faces numerous additional charges. NBPD Detectives also believe that there are additional juvenile victims. Specific details about the nature of the crime, the relationship between the suspect and victim, and the way the crimes were carried out are purposefully being withheld in order to protect the integrity of the investigation and to judge the validity of victims that investigators believe will come forward.
Anyone who believes they are, or someone they know is, a victim of this suspect is encouraged to call New Braunfels Police Detective Richard Groff at 830-221-4167.
