BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County Sheriff's Office arrested a man from Sacramento, accused of traveling to Chico to have unlawful sex with a minor, according to authorities.

Sheriff's arrested 22-year-old Jagvir Singh on Thursday, Oct. 10. 

The arrest was the culmination of an investigation that began in September, according to authorities.

During the investigation, Detectives learned Singh was traveling from Sacramento to Chico for the past several months, for the purpose of having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor victim, deputies said.

Singh was placed under arrest and transported to the Butte County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities interviewed Singh, where he admitted to traveling to the Chico area to meet the minor victim, and to having unlawful sexual intercourse with the minor victim.

Singh was arrested for three felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, and an additional three felony counts of contacting a minor with the intent to have unlawful sexual intercourse, according to detectives.

He was booked into the Butte County Jail on Oct. 8.

A Butte County Superior Court Judge reviewed a declaration documenting Singh’s arrest and set Singh’s bail status as no bail until Singh attends further court proceedings.

Singh is expected to be arraigned on Thursday, October 10, 2019, at 3 p.m. in the Butte County Superior Court.
