A prosecutor announced an indictment Thursday against an 18-year-old Arizona student charged with sexually assaulting several girls over a nearly five-year span.

Charges against Tyler Kost of San Tan Valley include multiple counts of sexual assault with a minor, sexual abuse with a minor and sexual conduct with a minor. Kost also faces one count of child molestation.

Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles said the victims in the crimes alleged in the indictment issued Wednesday ranged from 12 to 17 years of age.

Voyles said the alleged offenses occurred between October 2009 and April 2014.

Kost was born in January 1996 so he was 13 when the first offense allegedly occurred. But Voyles plans to try him as an adult on all charges.

“In Arizona, once an individual turns 18, we don’t have a choice,” Voyles said. “(State law) makes it fairly clear.”
