HURST, Texas – Anyone who’s watched a lot of cartoons probably recognize Henry the Chicken hawk in those Merrie Melodies cartoons from Warner Bros. A big hit with kids.

But folks in Hurst, Texas, are not laughing about another kind of chicken hawk: the older boy or man who goes after young kids.

In this case, two possible chicken hawks.

Ricardo Javid Lugo is a 17-year-old from Mexico who presented fake documents to enroll in Hurst Hills Elementary School as a sixth-grader. Randy Ray Wesson, 28, posed as his father, which he isn’t.

Cops busted Wesson at the Fort Worth residence he shared with the boy.

Police reports say he admitted having 42,000 images of child porn on his computer, thumb drives, phone, and SD cards, and that he copped to sexually abusing more than 100 kids between the ages of 7 and 14.

A spokesperson for the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District sent an email to the media saying: “There was no indication that the student’s records were forged or that the student was too old to attend elementary school. The student’s behavior at school also did not raise any concerns.”

Authorities found the boy on a list of missing kids from Mexico, and they think Wesson lured him to Texas and supplied him with the fake documents to get into school.

There’s one chicken hawk who’s now a jail bird, and none too soon.
