SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. – An 18-year-old San Tan Valley man was arrested for alleged sexual misconduct with a 4-year-old girl.

Child Protective Services notified the Pinal County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday after receiving a phone call reporting sexual misconduct involving the child and a family acquaintance.

Sheriff's office detectives interviewed the child and determined there was inappropriate sexual conduct between Dalton Cole and the girl twice in October or November and once in January, according to PCSO spokesman Tim Gaffney.

Detectives said Cole made admissions that corroborated significant portions of the victim's account of what occurred.

Cole was arrested and booked into the Pinal County Jail for sexual misconduct with a minor, a dangerous crime against a child. He is being held without bond.
