A well known bonding agent and former newspaper reporter was jailed Friday afternoon on a 1-thousand dollar bond by the Reno County Sheriff’s Office.
Dwight Jurgens, a bonding agent for TNT Bonding has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of promoting prostitution.
The 66-year-old Jurgens has been a bonding agent for several years. He was also a well known newspaper reporter at the Hutchinson News, and also worked as an assignment editor at a Wichita television station. He also has his own website called “Dwights Effort.” But, it appears to not have been updated with any new content since last year.
Rumors at the courthouse have indicated that he may have been trading bonds for sexual favors, however no one in the sheriff’s department would confirm that.
He was arrested at around 3 p.m., by sheriff detectives and Sheriff Randy Henderson in a brief news release stated that Jurgens was arrested with no other details on the two charges. Sheriff Captain Steve Lutz told us that he couldn’t comment because of the on-going investigation.
The investigation has been going on for quite some time.
