FLORENCE, Ariz. -- A Casa Grande man has been accused of 24 sex-related offenses involving eight underage girls over 19 years.

Pinal County prosecutors said 51-year-old Luis Martinez was arraigned Friday.

Authorities said the offenses allegedly occurred in or near Casa Grande from 1987 to 2006 and the girls ranged in age from 8 to 16.

Martinez was indicted on 10 counts of felony child molestation, six counts of felony sexual conduct with a minor, six counts of felony sexual abuse, one count of indecent exposure and one count of sexual assault.

If convicted, prosecutors said Martinez could face up to 210 years in prison. That's based on the inclusion of three potential life sentences due to victims' ages at the time of the accused offenses.
