Mesa Man Indicted in Sexual Exploitation of Minors and Luring Case

MESA -- Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced a State Grand Jury indicted Bryon Wood on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor arising out of his alleged possession of sexually exploitive images on his computer.

Wood was originally arrested and indicted for aggravated luring a minor for sexual exploitation in August 2018 during an undercover child sex trafficking operation titled Operation Degrossting. As a result of that investigation, law enforcement developed sufficient information to execute a search warrant of his home where images of children being sexually exploited were reportedly found on his computer.

Wood is being held in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

Assistant Attorney General Blaine Gadow is prosecuting the case. 

All defendants are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law.
