Court documents indicated an FBI special agent was on a website used for prostitution and recognized a 16-year-old girl who was pictured on it. Omaha Police joined the case and a date was arranged through the website. Several hours later, Midder was arrested at a hotel near 108th and L Street.

A child was also at the scene and allegedly told police Midder was violent with her.

If convicted, Midder faces 15 years to life in prison.
