A Pinal County Superior judge sentenced a former Mesa police officer to 682 consecutive years in prison on Monday after being convicted of 32 counts of various sex crimes, which included child molestation, sexual conduct with a minor, sexual exploitation of a minor, public sexual indecency, and furnishing harmful items to a minor.
The East Valley Tribune reports that 31-year-old Justin Bowman was given the maximum sentence for his convictions, which was 15 consecutive life terms in prison. The man was arrested back in 2008 when police responded to an attempted suicide attempt at his home. His wife told police officers that she found child pornography on their home computer, which prompted an investigation. Authorities then accused the man of molestation against two children, including a 10-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl.
