YUMA, Ariz. — A Yuma police officer has been charged with three felony
counts of luring a minor for sexual exploitation even though the 16-year-old
victim has repeatedly denied he did anything wrong.
Defense attorney Marlo Arnold told a Yuma Justice of the Peace Tuesday that
25-year-old Ron Anton Ciancimino should have his $110,000
cash-only bond lowered. The request was denied.
Ciancimino was arrested Friday by Yuma County sheriff’s deputies and formally
charged Tuesday. The Yuma Sun reported the case
developed last week after deputies were called to a local hospital about a girl
who had been a victim of a possible sexual offense.
Deputies later arrested 27-year-old Joshua Jonathan Alpizar. They say he
admitted to the allegations but details haven’t been released by the sheriff’s
