A 54-year-old Stanton man was booked into Orange County Jail for allegedly molesting a woman when she was 12 to 15 years old, according to authorities.

The alleged victim, who is now 24, went to Tustin Police last Tuesday to say Simonetta sexually abused her when she was underage, according to Sgt. Andrew Birozy, who declined to say how the pair know one another.

Officers arrested Simonetta Tuesday on suspicion of lewd acts on a child, sodomy, digital penetration and continual sexual abuse of a minor before he was taken to Orange County Jail, which he bailed out of Wednesday, according to jail records.

Simonetta has not yet been charged, but Birozy says Tustin investigators are concerned there may be more victims and ask anyone with information to call Detective Pam Hardacre at 714.573.3248.
