FARGO — A 42-year-old Fargo man was arrested as part of an underage sex sting this week.

During the undercover operation, dubbed Guardian Angel, detectives posed as a female under the age of 18 and communicated with 39 people about exchanging money for sex acts, according to Fargo police.

Of those 39, the only one busted was Wade Clifton Pfarr. He was booked into the Cass County Jail at about 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, on suspicion of patronizing a minor for commercial sexual activity.

He was later charged in Cass County District Court with one count of patronizing a mior for commercial sexual activity.

Fargo police conducted the sting, along with the North Dakota Human Trafficking Task Force, Homeland Security, North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Metro Street Crimes Unit.

In 1998, Pfarr pleaded guilty in Clay County District Court to two counts of criminal vehicular homicide that stemmed from a crash in Moorhead that killed 51-year-old Donald L. Parrow and his daughter, Rebecca Parrow.

In August 1998, Pfarr was driving under the influence of alcohol along Highway 75 when he hit a ditch and his vehicle became airborne. Pfarr’s vehicle struck the Parrows’ oncoming vehicle, killing them immediately.

Pfarr was sentenced to two years in prison.
