Mesa man sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexual conduct with a minor
PHOENIX – A Mesa man was sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to having sexual conduct with a minor, authorities said Friday.
In 2021, the victim told authorities that Rex Shotell Cravat, 46, had been molesting her for years, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office said in a press release.
Cravat pleaded guilty on three charges in May of this year and was sentenced on June 24.
Judge Roy Whitehead also ordered lifetime probation for Cravat after he’s released from prison.
No other details about the crime were made available.
“This victim had the support of not only her family but our criminal justice system through our victim advocates and prosecutors,” Interim County Attorney Rachel Mitchell said in the release.
“Her courage to speak up allowed for justice to be served.”
