(2 Counts) Felony Luring a Minor for Sexual Exploitation & (1 Count) Felony Sexual Conduct with a Minor (Dangerous Crimes Against Children) Reduced to Attempt with 1 Year in Prison – State v. Mr. M (DMC No. 12163) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2014-000999):
Detectives had received a call from a grandparent stating that Mr. M had been contacting their 13 year old daughter on an internet site. Their conversations had gone on for months and were sexual in nature. They also showed that Mr. M had requested pictures of the 13 years old’s, breast, vagina and anus, and requested a video of her masturbating. Mr. M was 22 years old and had an IQ of 80. He was ultimately arrested and admitted to all of the activity. Although Mr. M was originally facing a minimum of 10 to 24 years in prison on just one of the charges, we were able to demonstrate through Mitigation that due to his low IQ, Probation, or the lowest possible prison time, would be the most appropriate sentence. We also presented a Psycho Sexual Risk Evaluation (PSRE) which demonstrated he was a low risk to re-offend. He was ultimately given Probation with 1 year of Prison (in which he ultimately served only 10 months).
