SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A criminal defense attorney has been arrested in a sting operation on suspicion of meeting an underage girl for sexual purposes.
The Orange County Sheriff's department said Sunday that 36-year-old Arturo Fernando Shaw Gutierrez was being held on $50,000 bail.
Gutierrez came under scrutiny after the parents of an Orange County girl turned over online conversations between him and their daughter to police.
Investigators posed as a young girl and contacted Gutierrez on Facebook. They arranged a meeting at the Seal Beach pier that led to his arrest on Saturday.
Authorities then searched Gutierrez's Ventura County home, and recovered evidence suggesting that Gutierrez may have communicated with or met more underage girls.
