Ex-recruiter gets jail for sexual contact with teen

TUCSON, ARIZ. — A former Army recruiter who worked in Tucson-area high schools has been sentenced to a year in jail for having sexual contact with a student.

Pima County prosecutors say 30-year-old Matthew Troy Roberts also was sentenced Monday to six years of probation.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 18.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that a judge told Roberts that he could face prison if he violates the terms of his release following the jail sentence.

Police and prosecutors built much of the case against Roberts on text exchanges he had with the 16-year-old girl.

The victim’s stepmother says Roberts’ actions caused emotional harm to her stepdaughter and wrecked their familial relations.
