An Olivehurst man accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old for the past eight months was arrested by sheriff’s deputies over the weekend.

According to the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office, 25-year-old Juan Hurtado met a local teenager on Facebook and then transitioned that online friendship into a sexual relationship.

Deputies say they became aware of the alleged relationship when a friend of Hurtado’s told deputies they’d seen sexually explicit images of a minor on Hurtado’s phone.

Hurtado is facing charges of possession of child pornography, soliciting a minor with the intent to have sex, lewd and lascivious acts with a child, and oral copulation with a child under 16. He is being held in the Yuba County Jail with bail set at $280,000.
