CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- Chandler police say they have arrested a man for multiple alleged sex offenses against his daughter's teenage babysitter.
On Monday, Feb. 11, 2019, 41-year-old Joseph Peter Sisemore was arrested on multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
Sisemore is alleged to have performed sex acts with a 15-year-old girl, whom he hired to babysit his 10-year-old daughter.
Police say he hired the girl two years ago, but say the sexual encounters started this past November, all taking place at Sisemore's apartment.
“So for me as a police officer that is a very good indicator that he was grooming this child,” said Detective Seth Tyler with Chandler PD.
Police say the victim eventually went to her parents and recorded a phone call with Sisemore, where he admitted to having sex with her.
That tape was handed over to police, who were waiting when Sisemore walked out of a CVS after buying the 'morning after pill,’ worried she might be pregnant.
The police department says the case should be a reminder to all parents to talk to their kids about what inappropriate behavior looks like.
They should have guidelines on people when it comes to touching their bodies,” said Tyler. “They need to understand there are people like Joseph Sisemore that are out there that are looking to victimize them."
Sisemore is charged with 12 felony counts of sexual conduct with a minor, and is being held on a $100,000 cash bond.
Court paperwork shows Sisemore believes he’s a sovereign citizen.
