Ex-recruiter gets jail for sex with Tucson girl

TUCSON, Ariz. — A former Army recruiter who worked in Tucson-area high
schools has been sentenced to a year in jail for having sexual contact with a
student.

Pima County prosecutors say 30-year-old Matthew Troy Roberts also was sentenced
Monday to six years of probation.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual conduct with a minor under the age of
18.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that a judge told
Roberts that he could face prison if he violates the terms of his release
following the jail sentence.

Police and prosecutors built much of the case against Roberts on text exchanges
he had with the 16-year-old girl.

The victim’s stepmother says Roberts’ actions caused emotional harm to her
stepdaughter and wrecked their familial relations.
