They two initially met through a Craigslist personal ad and communicated for about a year.
Shortey was charged with engaging in child prostitution, prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church, and transporting a minor for prostitution/lewdness.
The police affidavit lists a series of messages on the messaging app Kik allegedly between Shortey and the teenager as they planned to meet. The teenager, identified in the affidavit as J.M., told Shortey he needed money for spring break.
"Jaime Tilley" responded, "I don't really have any legitimate things I need help with right now. Would you be interested in 'sexual" stuff?'
Shortey, who used the alias "Jamie Tilley", referred to the teen as "baby boy". The witness followed the two to the Super 8.
Shortey told authorities that "he was just there to hang out with his friend", the report states. The messages, which were found on the teenager's Kindle Fire tablet, later led to the charges against the Oklahoma senator.
Police also found lotion and an open box of condoms inside backpacks in the room.
Moore police said that acting on a tip from the teen's father, officers went to the Super 8 Hotel last week and smelled marijuana coming from a room.
A redacted Moore police report shows officers found a juvenile and an adult man inside.

The Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday imposed sanctions against Shortey, voting unanimously for a resolution that accuses him of "disorderly conduct".
Senate President Pro Tem Mike Schulz (R) said the resolution was not meant to be "a presumption of guilt or innocence", according to the AP.
Shortey does have a wife and children, however, News 9 was unable to reach them for a comment.
After his election in 2010, Shortey pushed for a state law requiring presidential candidates to present valid long-form birth certificates and a ban against using aborted fetuses in food. "That's not the case". Senate Bill 573 was introduced early last month; Shortey's name was removed as author Wednesday.
