(3 Counts) Felony Luring a Minor for Sexual Purposes (Dangerous Crimes Against Children), Felony Tampering with Evidence, Felony Sexual Conduct with a Minor (DCAC) & Felony Furnishing Obscene Material to a Minor Reduced to 3 Counts with 10 Years in Prison – State v Mr. G (DMC No. 12843) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2014-001975):
Mr. G was a 61 year old teacher at a local elementary school who was accused by another teacher of being “too close” to one of his 14 year old students. An investigation ensued in which the 14 year old stated that she had sexual intercourse with Mr. G on a couple of occasions. They had sent sexually explicit photos and text back and forth on her cell phone. Mr. G admittedto everything involved with the cell phones and photos, but he did not agree that he had sex with the victim. Ultimately a Psycho Sexual Risk Evaluation was conducted and Mitigation materials were put together for the prosecutor. An offer of 10 to 15 years was received and Mr. G entered into that plea. At sentencing, the court agreed that he deserved the lowest amount of time under the plea agreement (10 years in prison). He originally was facing the rest of his life in prison.
