(Phoenix, Arizona) – On June 24, 2022, Rex Shotell Cravat (DOB 3/1976) of Mesa, Arizona received a 20-year sentence with lifetime probation after pleading guilty three counts involving sexual conduct with a minor.
The crime was discovered after the victim came forward in 2021 with information that Cravat had been molesting her for years. In May 2022, Cravat pleaded guilty to the crimes. Judge Roy Whitehead sentenced Cravat to 20 years to be served in the Arizona Department of Corrections, followed by lifetime probation.
“As a sex crimes prosecutor, I know how difficult these types of crimes can be on the victim and the family. This victim had the support of not only her family but our criminal justice system through our victim advocates and prosecutors. Her courage to speak up allowed for justice to be served,” said County Attorney Rachel Mitchell.
