LOS ANGELES – A Crownpoint man is facing aggravated sexual abuse charges after being arrested by the FBI on March 29.

According to court records, the actions that resulted in two charges of aggravated sexual abuse occurred sometime between Sept. 1, 2009, and Oct. 31, 2009.

The indictment handed down against him said that between those two dates, Pinto attempted and did engage in a sexual act with two females under the age of 12. The actions took place within the New Mexico boundaries of the Navajo Reservation.
