18 year old busted for having sex with 17 year old girl friend

May 2, 2014

Arizona Republic

Pinal County Sheriff's Office nails a big time criminal????

Don't these police officers have any REAL criminals to hunt down????

I suspect this 18 year old high school kid is accused of having consensual sex with his 17 year old high school girl friend.

On the other hand I suspect it's a lot safer for the police to hunt down victimless crimes like this then to hunt down people who commit real crimes like robbers and rapists. [real rapists!!! not this guy who is probably accused of statutory rape]

San Tan Valley man again jailed in juvenile sex case

An 18-year-old male has been rearrested on allegations that he had sexual contact with one or more minors, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

Tyler Kost was arrested Thursday, several days after posting a $10,000 bond almost immediately after being arrested on suspicion of two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual contact.

Although the charges stem from Kost's relationship with one girl, detectives are investigating whether he engaged in sex acts with up to 13 under-age girls.

The Sheriff's Office did not provide details on the latest arrest but, in a statement Thursday night, said five potential victims have come forward since Kost first was taken into custody.

Sheriff Paul Babeu is expected to provide an update on the investigation and give details about the latest arrest during a press conference Friday morning in Florence.

The Sheriff's Office has identified Kost as a Poston Butte High School student.
