Tucson man is arrested in sexual exploitation case

TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities say a Tucson man has been arrested in a sexual
exploitation case.

Tucson police said Friday that 28-year-old Jesus Ballesteros is in Pima County

He’s being held on suspicion of aggravated luring of a minor, attempted child
prostitution, attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and attempted sexual
conduct with a minor.

They say a Tucson woman called 911 on Dec. 29 to say she discovered her
11-year-old daughter was chatting online with an adult man.

Police say the interaction included graphic pictures and sexual conversation
between the man and girl.

They also say the man tried to arrange a meeting to have sex with the girl,
videotape the encounter and pay her for it.

Ballesteros was arrested Thursday and police say he has prior convictions for
sexual offenses.
