Authorities in Ventura County arrested a man for sex crimes following his arrest last month. Investigators initially contacted the man while they were following up on potential narcotics trafficking.
During that investigation, detectives found evidence that the man was engaged in sexual activity with underage females. The man now faces charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, oral copulation of a child under 18 and possession or control of child pornography.
In August, Ventura County authorities arrested the same man on narcotics-related charges. At that time, authorities were investigating the man’s drug sales to minors. He remains free on a $50,000 bail, but faces numerous charges and the revocation of his probation.

Convictions for sexual offenses can literally affect you for the rest of your life. They can control where you live, what you do for a living and who you can associate with. They can also impact the way you use a computer, your ability to cross the border and other simple things. Most sex offense convictions will require lifetime registration on the state’s sex offender registry. As a registered sex offender, local authorities will subject you to “compliance checks” regularly. If you are out of compliance with registration rules, you could return to prison.
