The former Arizona State Senator was a rising talent in the Democrat Party before his arrest in 2019

Former Arizona State Senator Otoniel Navarette received a sentence of one year in prison for molesting a teen boy in his care. The sentence was passed on Friday in Maricopa County, Arizona.

Judge Kristin Culbertson was originally prepared to issue a sentence of just 60 days in prison with ten years’ probation if Navarette participated in counselling, but the offer was refused because it would require Navarette to admit his guilt. As a result, he was given a year in prison instead.

Sentencing guidelines prevented him from being given a stiffer sentence. He is likely to be out of prison within seven months.

The victim was abused between the ages of 13 and 15 while living with the former state senator. He testified that he remained with Navarette and endured the abuse because he was from a “dysfunctional home.”

The trial was Navarette’s second on sexual-abuse charges. The first trial, which involved two victims and six felony counts, had to be abandoned after the jury couldn’t agree on a verdict.

Navarette has maintained his innocence throughout both trials. Before his arrest in August 2021, he was identified as a rising talent within the Democrat Party.
