Steven Allen Othberg – Repeat Sex Offender – Sister needs Denial Therapy

Police paperwork reveals a 5-year-old boy accused his babysitter of making him take off his clothes so the suspect could touch him while he took pictures.

The boy’s mother called police on January 14. Steven Allen Othberg, 23, was arrested the following day.

“I think he’s innocent,” said Tiffany Othberg, the suspect’s sister.

Police paperwork paints a different picture of Othberg stating his criminal history includes an arrest in Ohio on November 7, 2007 for rape, gross sexual imposition and kidnapping a 5-year-old girl.

“He didn’t do it,” said his sister.

Othberg’s sister said he told her he fell asleep and the girl injured herself.

Then, he pleaded to a lesser charge of endangering a child before moving to Arizona in September.

The Scottsdale victim’s mother told ABC15 she never would have allowed Othberg to babysit her three children had she known any of this.

“I don’t think he would do that,” said Othberg’s sister. “He’s raised my daughter. She’s five now, she’s his world, he would never hurt her.”
