Comments Off on Sanford John Golay, 46, of Sun Lakes, arrested on child prostitution and Methamphetamine charges

CHANDLER, AZ – A 46-year-old Sun Lakes man is headed back to prison after he admitted to attempting to set up a 16-year-old girl as a prostitute and offering her methamphetamine.

According to court documents, Sanford John Golay contacted someone he believed to be a 16-year-old girl on a social media site last August.Sanford%20John%20Golay_1428611772910_16461979_ver1_0_640_480

But the listing was posted to an undercover account by law enforcement.

Golay allegedly responded to the post by saying he lived in the Chandler area and was an avid user of methamphetamine.

Through online conversations over time, Golay was told the person he was chatting with was a female runaway living in hotels in Chandler.

Police said the conversations stopped in December 2014, but that when they revisited the site around March 30, 2015, Golay immediately contacted the fictitious teen and began recruiting her to work as a prostitute with him.

Golay allegedly claimed to have worked female prostitutes in California and began offering information to make the business successful.

At one point, the communications were transitioned to cell phone text messages, police said.

Golay agreed to meet the undercover female profile at a motel in Chandler on April 8, 2015, describing the vehicle he would be driving.

He was taken into custody in the parking lot and police reported they found meth, drug paraphernalia and a cell phone with the same number used for communicating with the undercover female profile.

Police say Golay confessed to trying to assist the juvenile in a prostitution business and to use the methamphetamine with her.

Golay also told police he was set to return to prison in the next few weeks for prior drug offenses.

Golay was arrested on one count of child prostitution, one count of induce to prostitute, transfer or sell drugs to a minor, drug paraphernalia possession and dangerous drug possession.

His next court date is set for April 16.
