NOT CHARGED | CHILD MOLESTATION (DCAC) – State v. Mr. Z. (DMC No. 9652) (Pinal County Sherriff’s Office Investigated): Mr. Z. had been married and had two young children who he is raising as a widower. Both children were under the age of 12, and his deceased wife’s parents were trying to gain legal custody of the two children. They began making accusations that Mr. Z. (a Doctor who was an African National) had been molesting the children. Mr. Z. took and passed a polygraph (under our direction), and this was forwarded to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Officer who was in charge.
She still forwarded her report to the Pinal County Attorney’s Office, and we met with them and provided evidence which prevented charges from being filed for Child Molestation as a Dangerous Crime Against Children (DCAC) under ARS 13-1410. If Mr. Z. would have been charged he would have been incarcerated without bond and would have immediately been suspended from practicing medicine. In addition, if he were convicted he would have spent a minimum of 10 years in prison per allegation (i.e. 20 years plus) and his life would have been ruined.
