Police believe that there are likely to be other sex crimes that have yet to be revealed.
Detectives investigating the case describe 19-year-old Brandon Howard as a predator.
Kingsburg police officers told us about the incident in the hope that other minors who may have had improper interactions with Howard would come forward.
The activity dates back a year and a half, according to people familiar with the matter.
Detective Lee Forlines says the information was brought into the department by several political parties, including school officials.
Investigators say the sex crimes allegedly committed by Howard occurred in multiple victims between the ages of 14 and 17, and Howard said he was supportive when he was detained.
Howard faces several felony charges, including two oral matings with a person under the age of 18 and the crime of sexual insertion of a victim under the age of 16.
Kingsburg PD does not reveal where Howard worked, but says his retail work exposed him to minor teens.
Investigators are now encouraging other minor victims to come forward.
Action News contacted Howard’s family, who refused to comment on his behalf.
He is behind the prison in Fresno County Prison and will be in front of the judge on Monday morning.
Of course, you can always report such crimes anonymously through Valley Crimestoppers.
