REDUCED (ALL) | SEXUAL CONDUCT with a MINOR (DCAC) (3 counts), CHILD MOLESTATION (DCAC) (3 counts) and KIDNAPPING (3 counts) ALL REDUCED to CHILD ABUSE with PROBATION and 90 DAYS of DEFERRED JAIL – State v. Mr. C. (DMC No. 5701) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2005-101311): Mr. C. was a 17 year old high school student who was living with his dad, his dad’s girlfriend and her 13 year old daughter. On five separate occasions, Mr. C. had sexual contact with the 13 year old daughter which included digital penetration (with his fingers) and oral sexual contact. It was alleged that he would not allow the 13 year old to leave the room when this occurred, and therefore he was charged with 3 counts of kidnapping, along with 3 counts of Child Molest and 3 counts of Sexual Conduct with a Minor. We were able to have a Psychosexual Risk Evaluation performed on Mr. C., showing that he was not a risk to reoffend, nor was he abnormal being 17 years of age and attracted to a high school freshman. We secured an offer to 1 count of Child Abuse with probation and 90 days deferred jail (meaning he did not have to serve them unless he violated probation). He was originally facing 69 years in prison because the charges were considered “Dangerous Crimes Against Children” (DCAC).
