On August 15th, Judge Steven Fuller sentenced Lenz to 22 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections, followed by two terms of lifetime probation. Lenz also must register as a sex offender.
In July, Lenz entered into a plea agreement and pled guilty to one count of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, a class two felony; and two counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor in the Second Degree, each a class three felony.
This case involved the Department of Homeland Security and the Apache Junction Police Department. In May 2021, an online investigation into a chat platform located evidence of child sexual exploitation. According to court documents, Lenz was connected to an IP address in the case, and upon the execution of a search warrant at an Apache Junction residence, investigators forensically discovered child sexual exploitation videos and images on a mobile device.
