A Phoenix man, previously convicted of sex crimes involving kids on two prior occasions, is now facing new charges for similar accusations.

Police received reports on March 17 about Joshua Lamar Snyder allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl. According to the person, the incident happened five days prior.

Police did not give details on how the two met, but they did say that Snyder picked up the girl from her home and the pair had inappropriate relations at a park near 35th and Southern avenues. They then went to his home, where they allegedly had sex again.

Police say this is not the first time Snyder has been caught.

In 2015 he pled guilty to sexual conduct with a minor for having sex multiple times with a 16-year-old girl. Also in 2000 as a juvenile, he pled guilty to a reduced charge of child molestation. In that case, he had multiple sexual encounters over a three year period with a girl from 6 to 9-years-old.

Snyder is a registered sex offender currently on probation for sex-based crimes against children.

Snyder was given a $25,000 bond and must wear an electronic monitoring device if released.

He has been charged with five counts of sexual conduct with a minor.
