MOHAVE COUNTY, Ariz. (KTNV) — A 63-year-old man from Lake Havasu City in Arizona has been arrested for sexual conduct with a minor, according to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.

MCSO says that the girl and her mother lived near Fichtelman. They also said that he denied the charge even after he was confronted with the results of the paternity test.

Fichtelman, who is a registered sex offender, was booked into the Mohave County Detention Facility.

The child is currently in the care and custody of the Arizona Department of Child Services.
