CHANDLER - Chandler police arrested Richard Michael Scott, 66, a former Chandler resident, for various sex crimes against a child.

Scott is accused of abusing his step granddaughter from the time she was four-years-old up to the age of 12.

Police learned of the abuse after the victim disclosed details to a friend who in turn told her parents.

Since the disclosure by the step granddaughter two of her friends have come forward to admit Scott sexually abused them as well.

Scott has been booked into Maricopa County Jail on four counts of sexual conduct with a minor, one count of attempted
child molestation, two counts of child molestation and two counts of sex abuse.
