PRESCOTT -- Police arrested Prescott resident Shawn C. Reel, age 29, on sex offenses with a 14-year old daughter of a co-worker. Reel was booked into the Yavapai County Jail where he is being charged with Sexual Conduct with a Minor and Molestation of a Child; both of which are felony charges.

Administrators of the Yavapai Regional Medical Center where Reel is employed as a security guard brought these allegations to the Prescott Police Department. An employee saw an email on Reel's work computer that contained sexual comments that were directed towards the 14-year old daughter of a hospital employee. This information was forwarded to hospital administrators who then notified Prescott Police.

Both Reel and the 14-year old victim admitted to these allegations. A search warrant was served at Reel's residence where evidence was seized in connection to the multiple sexual encounters between the two individuals.
