smithA Lake Havasu City man who pled guilty to a previous sex offense has now been charged with another. An investigation began after a five-year-old girl alleged she was touched by her grandfather over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Scott Smith, 46, was arrested December 2 for child molestation involving his granddaughter. He was also charged with failing to property register as a sex offender, a requirement from a previous criminal case.

Smith previously pled guilty to sexual abuse involving his 14-year-old daughter’s friend.
