Crespin previously faced two counts sexual assault against a person under 14 and two counts of sexual assault against a person under 16 along with five counts of lewdness.

Crespin was arrested in Albuquerque, N.M. after Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said he was wanted for sex crimes against children.

Crespin’s sentencing was set for Aug. 15.
