The FBI is investigating whether a former reporter for The Oklahoman hired a 16-year-old prostitute in violation of federal sex trafficking laws.

Nathaniel Zeke Campfield, 31, has not been indicted. He declined to comment Thursday.

The FBI revealed the investigation in a request for a search of Campfield's Oklahoma City home.

Campfield was fired Monday, about a week after his arrest on an assault and battery complaint at the Cox Convention Center at a graduation ceremony for high school students from Moore. One young woman reported he bumped or brushed past her four times.

An FBI agent wrote in a court affidavit that the prostitute said Campfield paid her $220 for sex at his residence. The agent reported the prostitute told Campfield in a text message she was 19.

Campfield told FBI agents May 8 that he contacted the prostitute after seeing a website ad, met her at a gas station but decided against paying her for sex because a male with her made him nervous.

Campfield first contacted the prostitute April 23 but refused to send her a picture, telling her in a text message he had a high profile job, according to the FBI affidavit.
