Teacher Arrested Charged with Luring a Minor for Sexual Exploitation

Destiny School Teacher and Local Coach Randy Escobedo was arrested and charged with Luring a Minor for Sexual Exploitation back on October 8th, 2013. The alleged victim in the case is a 14-year-old female. Escobedo was released on a $14,000. bond.

Destiny School sent out the notice posted below, KQSS added the mugshot to the notice for the purpose of posting here.

Escobedo was listed on the Gila County Jail check in list but there was no information provided on the GCSO Activity Log about the incident. KQSS contacted Gila County Detective Emmett Dickinson to get more information. He said in Esocbedo’s defense “Everybody makes mistakes.” When asked why the Sheriff’s Office hadn’t sent out notice to the community and parents, he said there was no need to because “It’s not like that.” Dickinson also said that he didn’t think the fact that Escobedo is related to someone within the Sheriff’s Office was relevant and that

it had nothing to do with why the Sheriff’s Office failed to send out notice to the community. Dickinson said he was just busy that day.

It was reported that this case has been conflicted out to another county for prosecution.

    Important to note that Escobedo’s was arrested and his name was on the jail check in sheet put out by the Gila County Sheriff’s Office. So in a glass 1/2 full way, this is still a step in the right direction and positive change for the Sheriff’s Office as in the past no one would have likely been arrested or charged. The entire incident would have likely been brushed under the rug.

    I am really concerned that there are more victims. and would hope that effort to reach out to them is being made.

    This is really unfortunate & shocking. My kids go to Destiny and really liked “Mr. E.” At least the situation was stopped before it got worse (that we know of). :(

    This guy was caught and arrested for “luring” a 14yr old for sex, and Det Dickinson says “it’s not like that” ??

    I heard he was convicted, but that the records will be “sealed.” Why all the secrecy?

      I’m not sure why, but I am looking into it. We have to stand together to let them know, public record is not just for the little people! At first I was told by the clerks office it was sealed because of a new law that passed on September of 2013, that they claim was intended to protect the minor. Through further questioning and research, the ARS number they gave me did not exist and I called the state legislators office and they said there was no such law passed.

    He has a few relatives working at the Sheriffs office, I do not know if he or his wife have relatives at the county, but–somthing is not right. It is common to cover the victim’s idenity, but not seal the offenders records.

      His relative is the Clerk of the Court. I like her, but I think it may play into it.

    Really disgusted that this was swept under the rug so to speak, and yes it is very likely that there are more victims.

    Susan K, please update the mug shot page. If the elected officials are too busy to do their job the people of Gila County still need to know on sight who the bad guys are. I check the mug shot page every time I am on your site.

    Oh and Dickerson you still need your ass kicked. Resign and let a REAL officer do the job.

    As for the Clerk of Court, shame on you for misleading the public. Resign or walk around with your head down in shame.

    Dickerson you stupid stupid little man. It was a year ago that this happened. Do you know how many other children you may have placed in danger? And you are now judge and jury.
