A 23-year-old Evans man was convicted Tuesday on multiple charges of sexually assaulting a Weld County girl and exploiting several other victims, according to prosecutors.
Zachary Myers, 23, was arrested in March 2016 after police found child pornography on his cellphone, according to a district attorney’s office news release. Investigators also found manipulative phone conversations between Myers and multiple underage girls from several states.
Myers coerced juvenile girls into sending him nude photos. If they refused, he’d threaten them and threaten to kill himself, according to the DA’s office.
On Tuesday, after a week-long trial, a jury deliberated for about 90 minutes and returned with convictions on 19 charges including: Sexual assault on a child, false imprisonment, assault, internet sexual exploitation of a child and sexual exploitation of a child. He was convicted of multiple counts of the same charges.
Myers is scheduled to be sentenced June 29.
