A 25-year-old Carson City Justice Court Clerk and Carson Little League coach has been arrested on felony charges, including statutory sexual seduction involving a 15-year-old male, Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong confirmed Saturday.
Arrested was Armando Navarro. He was taken into custody for suspected statutory sexual seduction and committing certain sexual acts in public, both felonies, and indecent or obscene exposure, a gross misdemeanor. As of Saturday afternoon, Naravarro had made arrangements to post bail.
According to the arrest report, aIt 10:57 p.m., Friday, Carson City sheriff’s deputies responded to the area of Cottonwood Drive and Cedar Street in North Carson City after receiving 911 calls of multiple shots being fired in the area. Upon arrival, deputies located a black Dodge sedan parked at the curb with two males in the vehicle.
As they approached the vehicle, one male was observable putting on his shirt, and once contact with the vehicle was made, a second male (nude) was observed attempting to get his clothes on. Also in view was a toy pistol in the front seat.
The two males were identified by officers: The first was Navarro, a Carson City Justice Court Clerk, and the second was a 15 year old juvenile male. Both admitted to officers that they had had sexual contact. The teen later told detectives that the two had met two months prior on a social website and had met for sex at Navarro’s residence, the arrest report states.
Carson City and Court management officials have been coordinated with throughout this matter and taken steps to insure the integrity of the systems. Navarro had only been employed by the Justice Court for approximately 6 months. Court officials have indicated that he is expected to be terminated from employment immediately.
While Sheriff’s detectives were able to learn that Navarro was associated with the Carson City Little League athletic group, this incident does not appear to have any connection to the league. Regardless, Little League executive officials were informed of the incident. As a result of the early notification and weekend, league officials were not in a position to comment, said Furlong
