Ventura County Criminal Defense Attorney Arrested In OC for Sex Charge

Arturo Guiterrez III, 36, a criminal defense attorney in Ventura County was arrested over the weekend in what law enforcement officials are saying was for sex offenses. Guitterrez was allegedly communicating with a minor from Orange County. The minor's parents accessed her Facebook account and learned of the relationship. Law enforcement took over the communications posing as the minor.

On Saturaday, Guitterez was arrested at Huntington Beach pier on charges of intent to commit a lewd act on a minor. Guitterez was booked on $50,000 bail and is expected to be in court this week. Orange County law enforcement notified Ventura law enforcement who searched Guitterez's home and suspect there may be more victims.
