(FLORENCE, AZ) - A Casa Grande man has been sentenced to 27 years in the Department of Corrections in a case involving sexual conduct with a minor.

On December 12th, 2022, Superior Court Judge Jason Holmberg sentenced Trevor Betterton, 37, to 27 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections followed by two terms of lifetime probation.

Betterton pled guilty to Sexual Conduct with a Minor, a Class 2 Felony and Dangerous Crime Against Children; and two counts of Molestation of a Child in the Second Degree, both Class 3 Felonies and Preparatory Dangerous Crimes Against Children.

This case was investigated by the Casa Grande Police Department and involved two victims, both under the age of 15. In 2021, a juvenile disclosed that Betterton previously molested her. As part of a plea agreement, Betterton admitted to illicit contact with the reporting juvenile and one additional juvenile.
