Southwest Key Employee Accused Of Sexually Abusing 14-Year-Old

A former Southwest Key employee, Fernando Magaz Negrete, made an initial court appearance on August 1, 2018. Magaz Negrete faces felony charges for assault, molestation and sexual abuse.

Magaz Negrete is in the Maricopa County Jail on a $150,000 dollar bond.

Southwest Key operates facilities that shelter and process Unaccompanied Minor Children, who have crossed over the southern border illegally.

Magaz Negrete is suspected of molesting a 14-year-old female illegal immigrant.

According to an AP report, Magaz Negrete “kissed and fondled the girl in her bedroom at the facility on June 27 in an encounter witnessed by the girl’s 16-year-old roommate, police said. They said surveillance video shows Magaz Negrete, 32, approaching the bedroom several times throughout the night, though the bedroom itself was outside the camera’s view.”

In 2015, the Arizona Daily Independent (ADI) reported on repeated claims by Southwest Key employees that the minors in the facilities were largely unprotected from human smugglers and other predators.

Southwest Key employees told the ADI that minors, who had been victimized on the journey to the U.S, were victimized in the shelters, and in some case fled the shelters in order to avoid being handed over to human traffickers again.

  1. ‘Nando is an opportunistic creep–just like his employers. He will probably get a light sentence because 1. he is a minority and 2. He thought she was asking for it. Was the girl brought here by her parents or traffickers pretending to be her parents? Lets quit rewarding illegal invaders by supporting them with tax money!

  2. SOUTHWEST KEY AND DR. SANCHEZ PART OF THE SYSTEMATIC ILLEGAL MEXICAN INVASION
    THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FINANCED OVER THE LAST DECADE.

  3. Perpetrator Fernando Magaz Negrete, 32, Obama Dreamer, coming from a very old and established culture! Keep voting Democrat!

  4. I don’t remember this much attention on Southwest Key during the Obama years. Funny how that works.

  5. It truly says a lot about a 32yr old man who’s only sexual prospects are those of a 14yr old girl held in detention.
    Pssst, hey Fernando, while the merits of masturbation are underrated, it at least keeps you out of jail.
