The investigation began when Mesa Police were contacted by the parents of the 16-year-old female victim. They reported that their daughter had been arriving home late from work and did not have a good explanation why. They had also been suspicious over the past few months when their daughter had been talking about hanging out with friends and seeing someone named Ray. Yesterday evening is when they learned it was the suspect, Ray Hutson (shown here in photo). The victim met Hutson when he was student teaching at Mountain View this past school year. The victim reported that the relationship turned sexual over the past month.

Through the investigation, Hutson was contacted and made admissions to his involvement with the victim. He was taken into custody and has been booked on five counts of Sexual Conduct with a Minor, a class 2 felony.
