Florence, AZ – The Pinal County Superior Court on Friday, April 30, 2010, sentenced Alec Holtz to 24 years in prison and lifetime probation as a sex offender for the kidnapping and attempted sexual conduct with a minor of a two and half year-old child on July 16, 2009, in Apache Junction.
Holtz, 21, kidnapped a girl that was playing outside a laundromat in the trailer park community where she lived with her family. He took the child to the home of a relative where Holtz lived and attempted to sexually abuse her.
The Apache Junction Police Department and the FBI began an investigation very quickly and found out that Holtz had been seen hanging around the trailer park community. They visited his home and found the little girl in his room. He admitted to police kidnapping the little girl and sexual abusing her.
“The AJPD and the FBI worked fast and efficiently to capture this predator,” said James P. Walsh, Pinal County Attorney. “All of us in law enforcement work very hard to keep children safe from predators like Alec Holtz.”
Jason Holmberg of the Pinal County Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case.
Holtz plead and was sentenced to:
• Kidnapping: 24 years in prison.
• Attempted Sex Conduct with a Minor: lifetime probation as a sex offender which requires him to register as a sex offender and be subject to GPS monitoring.
