Man pleads guilty to attempted child molestation in El Mirage

A former El Mirage resident has pleaded guilty to sex charges resulting from a child-molestation investigation that was launched by authorities there nearly a year ago.

Cristipher Lawrence Shafer, 34, now a Chandler resident, will face an array of sentencing options when he is sentenced Dec. 14 in Superior Court.

Shafer pleaded guilty Sept. 26 to two counts of attempted child molestation. The pleas were part of a deal that was struck with prosecutors allowing the possibility of probation.

He was arrested Feb. 8 after Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies launched a probe in mid-December into alleged sexual misconduct involving a boy and girl, both 7, dating from 2003.
