PHOENIX — A 21-year-old Prescott Valley, Arizona, resident has been accused of using Facebook in order to lure minors into having sexual relations with him.
According to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, Christopher Lewis allegedly used the social media website to sexually assault underage females.
Through an online investigation, detectives with the Sheriff’s office found that Lewis contacted the minors on Facebook, which eventually led to an online relationship, direct contact and a sexual relationship.
Lewis is also accused of sending an explicit photograph to a female that “he believed was 14-years-of-age,” according to police.
Police tracked down two underage female victims who are believed to have had sexual contact with Lewis. Both girls are from the Prescott basin area and said they had sexual relations with Lewis in 2013 and 2014, when he was 19 and 20.
Lewis was arrested and charged with Aggravated Luring a Minor for Sexual Exploitation in relation to the explicit photograph and 10 counts of Sexual Conduct with a Minor, according to police. He has since been released from the Camp Verde Detention Center on a $20,000 bond.
