Authorities say a TSA supervisor was arrested for having sex with minors in the Dominican Republic.
According to ABC New York, Vernon Lythcott was arrested on May 9 at JFK International Airport. Lythcott is accused of sleeping with two 15-year-old girls he met in the Dominican Republic in January for $80. Lythcott and the two men he was with were also accused of sexually assaulting one of the girls in a hotel room.
Though he admits to having sex with the girls, he says he thought they were older. Lythcott was arraigned on May 9 and has been placed on indefinite suspension while TSA begins the termination process.
