Arizona State Sen. Tony Navarrete has been arrested on charges related to a child sex crime investigation.
ABC 15 reported that Navarrete has been arrested Thursday evening in connection to a child sex crime investigation, police and multiple other sources confirm.
Navarrete serves Arizona’s 30th District, which covers parts of west Phoenix and Glendale.
In a statement Friday, Senate Democrats released the following statement:
“We are deeply disturbed by what we’ve learned from recent media reports about the arrest of Senator Tony Navarrete. As Senate Democrats we stand with all survivors of sexual assault and encourage anyone who needs it to call the Arizona Sexual and Domestic Violence Helpline at 602-279-2980 (SMS Text: 520-720-3383). These allegations and arrest are serious and deeply troubling. Right now, it’s important to allow for due process to take place through our judicial system. We are closely monitoring the situation and are anxious for the facts of this ongoing investigation to be revealed. At this point we do not have any details surrounding this ongoing case and we will refrain from further comment.”
The alleged incident involving sexual conduct with a minor happened in 2019. Further details surrounding this incident are not yet known.
Police say Navarrete now faces multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor, among other charges.

When he wasn’t allegedly abusing innocent children, Mr. Navarrete was lashing out about the AZ audit.
A reminder to all Arizonans that the Senate is beginning it’s sham audit. It’s republican lead and has absolutely zero credibly. Have a goodnight. #BigLie
