HILDALE – A 26-year-old Hildale man was arrested Sunday for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Police responded to a Hildale residence, where the father of a 17-year-old girl reported that Francisco Sergio Chareca had sexual intercourse with his daughter, Hildale Police Officer Samuel Johnson said in a probable cause statement supporting the arrest.

After interviewing the girl, police learned the man and girl had sexual intercourse “a couple times,” the statement said, and that they had sent multiple nude photos to each other via cellphone and Facebook.

According to the statement, the girl and her parents allowed police to look at the messages on the girl’s phone.

“There were at least two nude photos sent from (Chareca’s) phone of his genitals,” Johnson wrote in the statement.

Chareca was arrested and booked into the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility.

He was charged with third-degree felony unlawful sexual conduct with a 16- or 17-year-old under Utah code 76-5-401(2)(b), which states a person commits unlawful sexual activity with a minor by engaging in any sexual act with the minor involving the genitals of one person and the mouth or anus of another person, regardless of the sex of either participant.

Chareca’s bail pending trial is scheduled at $5,000.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    Hildale right? Just an everyday occurrence in that part of the world.

  • Robb March 30, 2015 at 8:02 pm

    That headline could have referred to any number of people that area.

  • Freelance March 30, 2015 at 10:13 pm

    Yawwwwwwwwn well this is some shocking news

  • fun bag March 30, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    wasn’t this the only black man in hildale, also?

    • Mean Momma March 31, 2015 at 7:41 am

      Why a black man would ever want to live in Hildale was beyond me until I read this article. I guess he just likes the young girls , and there are plenty out there who have been brainwashed into sexual relationships with older men, so I guess JACKPOT!

        .Ahh but you see, Those people you speak of have been brain washed into sexual relationships with older WHITE LDS men. This guy fits none of those categories. Another comment of mine got posted on the wrong article so I’ll repost it here, where it was meant to be: “The funny thing is that if he were white and a Mormon he’d get a $20,000 fundraiser, assigned 5 more wives and promoted to Bishop”! You know it’s true. 🙂

    So the only black guy in Hildale gets charged with sex with a minor, yet a good portion of the other male residents have sex with twelve year old girls AND boys, and it’s okay? He must not have been, well never mind.

  • tcrider March 31, 2015 at 7:05 am

    Why is it, all the other white boys don’t get a picture in the paper when they have sex with a minor in hilldale, except warren jeff of course.

  • fun bag March 31, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    Well, he can always plead to the judge that “she said she was 18 at the time”. Can’t use that excuse with a 12 year old, which is the norm up there.

    • Freelance March 31, 2015 at 3:43 pm

      Wow they wait till they reach the age of 12 now.?

  • Sherrell March 31, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    Black Hildale man. Not hardly. Hildale has never had a black resident. Maybe a political plant, to associate Short Creek with blacks, political posturing, but that is all. The LDS enemy is good at that, having highly placed members in the FBI, CIA, and other agencies. So that is what’s going on, to infiltrate and destroy.

    Hey, an apostate community is no better than any other, but that black brother is probably better.

  • sagemoon March 31, 2015 at 3:41 pm

    Nothing surprising about the headline until you see the picture of the suspect. A black man in Hildale?!? No way! I’d be less surprised if the headline read “Black man lynched in Hildale.”

    • Mean Momma March 31, 2015 at 4:53 pm

      Waaayyyy less surprised…

  • solocholo March 31, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    Hilldale > sex with a minor > black guy > there’s the three ring circus. PLUS I don’t give a rats a** about that sensational bull crap. Now the story on the disproportionate penis size on the bull on the main drag of Herk’n, that’s a story worth telling.

  • fun bag April 1, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    LOL, it is kinda funny that the one black man in hildale can’t manage to stay out of trouble…

  • fun bag April 3, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    Withh a name like Francisco Sergio Chareca, I’m guessin he’s actually from Africa. How in the world did this pervert end up in hildale though?
