A Bullhead City man faces a possible lengthy prison term following his sex offense convictions in a bench trial. David Salcido, 41, chose a judge over a jury to determine his fate regarding allegations that he improperly touched a 14-year-old girl on multiple occasions during the summer of 2009.
Salcido represented himself in the trial before Mohave County Superior Court Judge Lee Jantzen. Jantzen acquitted Salcido of indecent exposure and furnishing a minor related counts, but found him guilty of aggravated assault, three counts of sexual abuse and four counts of child molestation.
Prosecutor Greg McPhillips said Salcido faces the possibility of scores of years in prison when sentenced August 14.
