A 29-year-old Sierra Vista man, Steven Prescott, has been arrested for sexual conduct with a minor as a result of an investigation by Sierra Vista Police. The investigation began nearly two years ago and Sierra Vista Police received DNA test results on Friday.
According to Sierra Vista Police, the investigation started at about 3:44 a.m. on August 26, 2017, when the Sierra Vista Police Department received information that a 12-year-old juvenile may have been inappropriately touched while at a residence in the 2000 block of East Golf Links Road. The department also received information that inappropriate touching of the same juvenile may have occurred on previous occasions.
On June 14, 2019, results of DNA testing were returned to the Sierra Vista Police Department (SVPD) from the Arizona Department of Public Safety Crime Lab, connecting Prescott to the crime of sexual conduct with a minor. Later that same day, at about 4:56 p.m., SVPD officers made contact with Prescott at the Sierra Vista Police Department and he was taken into custody without incident.
Prescott was booked into the Cochise County Jail on four counts of sexual conduct with a minor and remains in jail with no bond.
