SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. -

A San Tan Valley man was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences for charges ranging from child molestation, sexual conduct with a minor and exploitation of a minor.

Back on March 5,  2012, the Pinal County Sheriff's office was contacted about a female child who had been inappropriately touched.

In an interview, the girl disclosed several years of sexual abuse that had been committed by 37-year-old Job Anthony Sanchez, according to PCSO.

On March 21, deputies with conducted a search warrant on Sanchez's home and found numerous items, including video tapes and digital media of Sanchez abusing and molesting the child.

He was arrested and booked into the Pinal County Adult Detention Center and held on a no bond status. A few days later, a grand jury returned an 18 count indictment on Sanchez, all of which were dangerous crimes against children because the victim was under the age of 12.

On January 18, after a trial, Sanchez was convicted on all counts.  He was later sentenced to five consecutive life sentences with an additional 181 year sentence for the crimes he committed.  Sanchez has no possibility of parole.

Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, "Mr. Sanchez used his relationship with the victim's family and betrayed that trust and forcibly sexually assaulted this young female victim. The overwhelming majority of child sexual abuse victims are abused by someone they know and trust, a person most parents would never suspect. It is important adults with children encourage their children to know they can talk with them about anything. If you suspect a child has been sexually abused, report it immediately to law enforcement."
