State v. Mr. C (DMC No. 14507) – (10 Counts) Felony Sexual Conduct with a Minor – Not Charged – Casa Grande Police Department Investigated.
Mr. C was 22-years old and began dating a 17-year old girl. The girl lived at home with her parents and they were unaware that their daughter was dating an adult. The dad found her phone and alleged that he saw there were photos, texts and videos of Mr. C and his daughter having sex. These were indicative of potentially 10 separate sexual incidents. The father then turned the phone over to the police and forbid Mr. C from ever contacting his daughter again.
We became involved in the case and we immediately had Mr. C sign an Invocation of Rights form forbidding the Detective from interrogating Mr. C without us being present. We forwarded that form to the Detective who had been attempting to contact Mr. C. The Detective who was assigned was with the Casa Grande Police Department. We also let the Detective know that Mr. C would not be granting any interviews. Also, based on the information received from Mr. C., we were confident that none of the videos had identifying characteristics of Mr. C himself. Ultimately, the Casa Grande Police Department closed their investigation. If Mr. C had been charged and convicted of all 10 Counts, he could have been sent to prison. Instead, he has no criminal charges on his record.
