PAHRUMP (KSNV – A Pahrump man has been arrested on suspicion of having sex with a girl younger than 14 years old, according to a news release from the Nye County Sheriff’s Department.

Constantino Cardenas Jr., 24, faces charges of lewdness with a child under 14 and statutory sexual seduction.

The Sheriff Department received a report Friday that a 15-year-old girl had written in her journal that she had sex with Cardenas. The girl was interviewed, and she then said that she had been engaged in a sexual relationship with Cardenas for the past two years, starting when she was younger than 14.

Cardenas was located, interviewed and arrested. He is being held at the NCSO Detention Center.

Because of the nature of the charges and to protect the identity of the victim, the Sheriff’s Department says it will release no further information at this time.
