There were a lot of questions surrounding his arrest, but now, things are becoming a bit clearer.
It appears that the Dem senator was busted after he was secretly recorded talking with one of his victims.
The Blaze reported that Maricopa County Superior Court documents show that one of the victims claimed that Navarrete touched him and performed sex acts on him more than five times from the time he was about 12 or 13 years old until he was 15 years old.
Police say they recorded Navarrete talking to one of the victims and admitting to the molestation.
“Of course, I regret any bad actions that I did, absolutely wishing everything could be different. I’m sorry, mijo,” Navarrete was quoted as saying on the recording. Police say he was not aware they were recording the call.
When the victim, who is now 16 years old, asked Navarrete why he touched the boy’s penis, he reportedly replied that he was “not well.”
Police have recommended 7 felony charges against the Democrat, including 3 counts of sexual conduct with a minor and 1 count of molestation of a child.
Horrific. What a monster.
The judge ordered a $50,000 bond. He also added conditions to the bond including the forfeiture of Navarrete’s passport.
