This week, it was reported that a young man was arrested for sex crimes he committed against children. The 26-year-old man worked at a church summer camp in 2010 where he allegedly molested an 11-year-old boy and videotaped the abuse. When police first learned about the incident they scheduled an appointment to interview the suspect. However, he did not appear for that interview which prompted officers to dig further into the allegations.
The investigators eventually found more than enough evidence to arrest the 26-year-old. They located hundreds of images on his computer of young children, many of which captured him committing sex acts with them. He was charged with committing multiple sex crimes including unlawful surreptitious video recording and sexual exploitation of a minor.
At this time, police have located four of the suspect's victims and are conducting further investigations to see if more victims will come forward. A sex crime conviction can lead to more than just time in jail, which is why people accused of these types of offenses should hire a Phoenix criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
