Man sentenced in Sexual Exploitation of a Minor case
(FLORENCE, AZ) - A Valley man has been sentenced to more than a dozen years in the Arizona Department of Corrections for Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.
Chavez pled guilty to Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, a Class 2 Felony and Dangerous Crime Against Children; and Sexual Exploitation of a Minor in the Second Degree, a Class 3 Felony and Preparatory Dangerous Crime Against Children.
In August 2022, Chavez was arrested after Superior Police received a report that Chavez had an ongoing illicit relationship with a minor. After his arrest, investigators used a search warrant to extract data from Chavez's cell phone, which contained illegal files depicting the exploitative exhibition of children, according to court documents.
