(Republican Insider) – A Democratic state senator from Arizona has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of sexual conduct with a child. This man is truly sickening and disturbing on every level. It’s folks like this that absolutely need to be made an example of.
According to reports coming from Gateway Pundit, 35-year-old Tony Navarrete (pictured here), who was considered to be a “rising star” within the Arizona Democratic Party, was arrested last Thursday evening and then charged with a felony that has been described as “knowingly engaging in intercourse or oral sex with a minor.”
The crimes are alleged to have taken place back in 2019, but were first reported on August 4 of this year.
“Sen. Otoniel “Tony” Navarrete was arrested Thursday evening and booked into jail. Police received a report that Navarrete had engaged in sexual conduct with a minor, a felony described as knowingly engaging in intercourse or oral sex with a minor,” the Arizona Capitol Times report said.
“It’s a class 6 felony, punishable by one year in prison, if that minor is at least 15, and a class 2 felony, with a presumptive prison sentence of five years, if the child is younger than 15 or if the person charged was in a position of trust, such as a teacher or parent,” the report continued.
“Phoenix police said the alleged crime occurred in 2019, and they received a report on Aug. 4. After interviewing a young victim and witnesses, they arrested Navarrete near his home on Thursday,” the AZ Capitol Times said, adding, “Navarrete, 35, has served in the state Senate since 2019, and served one term representing Legislative District 30 in the House before his election to the Senate.”
Ever since the story broke about Navarrete many folks have come out and stated that he needs to step down from his post immediately. And further information has revealed that there’s more than one felony count involved in this case.
In fact, there are a total of seven counts of sexual misconduct, all having to do with two young boys. The minimum penalty Navarrete could face is 49 years in prison.
One of the children involved in the case is now 16, but again, the alleged abuse is said to have started back in 2019. A report from AZ Central has revealed that Navarrete actually made a phone call where he confessed his own guilt and issued an apology to the victim.
“In the recorded call, monitored by police, Navarrete, 35, acknowledged touching the victim’s penis and performing oral sex on the youth multiple times over several years, according to documents released by Maricopa County Superior Court,” the report said.
“Navarrete told the youth he regretted his actions, knew they were wrong and repeatedly told the youth that the young man was not at fault for any of the interactions,” the report continued.
“Of course, I regret any bad actions that I did, absolutely wishing everything could be different. I’m sorry, Mijo,” Navarrete is quoted as saying during the phone call. Apparently, Navarrete was unaware the police were listening in to the call.
“In the phone call, the victim, now age 16, confronted Navarrete, asking why he touched his penis. Navarrete told him he wasn’t well, records show. He repeatedly expressed regret for his actions, which reportedly occurred at Navarrete’s home and have caused anger and anxiety issues for the youth,” the report added.
“Otoniel told him he is sorry he has to go through all this pain, not deserving it,” according to the narrative of the phone call that was made.
“The documents note another alleged incident where Navarrete reached under the shorts and touched the upper thigh of another teenager, who swatted his hand away,” it said.
This is a man who deserves to see the inside of a jail cell for the rest of his natural life. It’s one thing to be a crooked politician attempting to destroy liberty and freedom for groupthink and communism, but to harm a child, especially in a sexual way, is beyond disgusting.
The police have recommended the following charges:
-Three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of molestation of a child, punishable as Class 2 felonies because the alleged victim was under age 15.
-Two counts of sexual conduct with a minor, punishable as Class 6 felonies because the alleged victim was age 15 or older.
-One count of attempted sexual conduct with a minor, punishable as a Class 3 felony.

Navarrete had previously sponsored a bill that would require all of the schools in his state to start teaching sexual education instruction in Kindergarten. In other words, kids as young as four would be receiving sexual education. Think about his alleged crimes, then think about his support of that bill. Horrifying, right?
Let’s hope this man receives a fair trial that sees him put behind bars for his heinous crimes.
