PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) - A teenager's journal entry has led to the arrest of a 24-year-old man in Pahrump on lewdness and statutory sexual seduction charges.
The Nye County sheriff's office says 24-year-old Constantino Cardenas Jr. was arrested over the weekend after reportedly confirming the written accounts.
Authorities say an investigation began Friday when dispatchers received a report that a 15-year-old girl had written about having sex with Cardenas in her journal.
In an interview with investigators the girl said she had been having a sexual relationship with him for two years, beginning when she was 14 years old.
