On March 29th, 2014 at 2:03 p.m., A San Tan Valley man flagged down a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Deputy on patrol. The man reported he was on his way to confront a family friend who had just sexually assaulted his daughter (age 14 from San Tan Valley). The man and his children were then escorted to, and interviewed at the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office Substation in San Tan Valley where the case was turned over to the Criminal Investigations Bureau.

During the interviews it was revealed the suspect, Shaquawn Gamet (age 18 from San Tan Valley) had come to the victims residence to visit. During the visit Shaquawn had sexually abused the victim in two separate locations inside the residence. After being questioned by one of the victim’s family members, Shaquawn denied any sexual encounter occurred between him and the victim. He then left the residence.

After this was reported to the victim’s father, the victim confirmed the sexual contact had in fact occurred.

Shaquawn Gamet was interviewed and admitted to all allegations against him.

On April 14th, 2014 Shaquawn Gamet was arrested and booked into the Pinal County Jail in Florence for six counts of Sexual Contact with a Minor and six counts of Child Molestation.

Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “Shaquawn Gamet victimized this young victim, who will no doubt have a long road of recovery ahead of her, and Shaquawn will have plenty of time to think about the damage he has caused this victim as he sits behind bars where he belongs.”
