Houston County constable charged in alleged sex-for-favor scheme

Houston County investigators say they arrested a chief magistrate’s constable when he arrived at a woman’s home to exchange sexual favors for delaying her eviction.

Warren Scott Hicks, 51, was arrested about 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the woman’s apartment by investigators with the Houston County Sheriff’s Office, the agency said in a statement.

According to the release, Hicks is a chief constable working with the Houston County Magistrate Court. The agency said Hicks was released after posting a $10,000 bond on charges of pandering and violation of an oath by a public officer.

The statement said the woman notified law enforcement officials after a white male represented himself as a constable and called.

“The male had offered to delay the eviction process in exchange for sexual favors,” the sheriff’s office said in its statement.

Hicks’ photo and records were not initially listed Friday evening on the Houston County jail’s website. However, a website called Mugshots.com had Hicks’ mug shot and information, which showed he’d been released shortly before noon Friday. The site listed his bond at $5,000 for each of the charges.

No court date for Hicks has been scheduled.
