KINGMAN - A Bullhead City man accused of molesting a child is being held in the Mohave County jail on a $1 million bond. The Mohave County Grand Jury indicted Gabriel Sanchez Cancino, 62, on Thursday.

Cancino was taken into custody Nov. 15 after a 5-year-old girl told a relative that Cancino, a family friend, molested her when she was 4.

He faces three counts of sexual conduct with a minor under 12 years of age, aggravated assault and child molestation.

His arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. Dec. 2 in front of Judge Steven Conn.

Anyone with information regarding other possible sexual offenses by Cancino is asked to contact Bullhead City Police Department Det. Charles English at (928) 763-9200, ext. 203.

In another case involving an alleged sexual predator, the grand jury indicted Joseph Glen Piccin, 20, of Lake Havasu City on charges related to luring young girls via the Internet.

A 12-year-old girl told a Lake Havasu Police Department school resource officer that a man she "friended" on her Facebook page she thought was her age pressured her to use Skype for face-to-face conversations. He allegedly masturbated in front of the girl and her friend.

He reportedly offered to buy both girls gifts in exchange for sexual favors. After the investigation began earlier this month, other alleged victims have come forward and Piccin reportedly provided alcohol to two of them.

Piccin was charged with two counts of unlawful age misrepresentation, aggravated luring of a minor for sexual exploitation, indecent exposure of a minor under 15 years of age, furnishing harmful items to minors, and luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

His arraignment is set for 11 a.m. Dec. 2 in front of Judge Rick Williams.

He is being held on a $250,000 bond.

Anyone with information on other potential victims is encouraged to contact the Lake Havasu Police Department at (928) 855-1171.

The grand jury also indicted the following people on Thursday:

• Aaron Joseph Hite, aggravated assault.

Arraignment is set for 11 a.m. Dec. 2 in front of Williams.

• Joseph Manzanares Jr., organized retail theft and unlawful removal of theft detection device.

Arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. today in front of Judge Derek Carlisle.

• Alejandro Camacho, three counts of burglary in the second degree, two counts of trafficking in stolen property in the first degree, three counts of forgery, two counts of theft of a credit card, criminal impersonation, taking the identity of another and fraudulent schemes and artifices.

Arraignment is set for 10 a.m. Dec. 2 in front of Conn.

• Haison Dinh Nguyen and Randy Duong, transportation of marijuana (more than two pounds) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. Dec. 2 in front of Conn.

I have ZERO tolerance for anything done against kids and i dont at all take sides on this type of stuff, HOWEVER, i DO think there should be a law that accusations such as this should be thouroughly investigated BEFORE just arresting and jailing the people BEFORE they even know if the kid(s) are actually telling the truth or not.
So these people have to go through the embarrassment (of media) and sit in jail and stuff and they might not even be guilty of the crimes those kids accused them of. THEN once it hits the papers or some other kind of media, then everybody automatically THINKS the people are guilty, just because they was arrested and in jail and the media SAYS they did it. Personally i think some kind of positive proof is needed before going and arresting and jailing people for something KIDS may have said since KIDS are known to lie alot.

You know, we spend so much time and money on people smoking pot or other drugs, then we have creeps like these people out there.

Some of these predators always slip through the cracks because of lack of money and manpower! I just don't understand the priorities sometimes!
