FLORENCE, AZ - An 18-year-old San Tan Valley teen accused of sex crimes has been ordered to continue to be held without bond.
Tyler Kost is accused of sexually assaulting at least 18 classmates , the youngest just 13 years old.
The hearing began on Monday, July 21 when prosecutors presented forensic interviews from the victims and details of what victims disclosed from the alleged assaults, according to a press release from the Pinal County Attorney’s Office.
The hearing concluded on Wednesday afternoon resulting in a continuation of Kost’s non-bondable status.
Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles said prosecutors felt it necessary to continue to hold Kost without bond “to protect the public’s safety.”
He called for other potential victims to come forward.
