PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. -- Pinal County sheriff's detectives arrested a 23-year-old Queen Creek man for sexual conduct with a minor after a 15-year-old girl reported that she had sexual intercourse with him.

On May 3, the teen told her parents and school administrators that she had sexual intercourse with Christopher Michael Bochenek numerous times during the previous weekend, according to the sheriff's office.

She reportedly had told her mother that she was going to stay at a friend's home. Instead, she stayed with Bochenek, whom she had met through other acquaintances just days before.

The victim reported that she and Bochenek had intercourse more than 10 times over the weekend and that he provided her with alcohol, according to sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney.

The victim had numerous text messages from Bochenek, which confirmed her account and that he knew her age, Gaffney said.

On Thursday, detectives searched Bochenek's home in the 29000 block of North Taylor Trail where he lives with his family and collected evidence from his bedroom.

The following day, Bochenek met with detectives and made a full disclosure regarding the incident, according to Gaffney. He also shared his text messages to the victim, one of which read, "So, I hope I don't go to jail."

Bochenek was arrested and booked into the Pinal County Adult Detention Center for 15 counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
