Andrew Sundberg

Andrew Sundberg, 22, was arrested for sexual conduct with a minor. This photo was posted on the Mohave County Sheriff's Office Facebook page on June 25, 2020 to congratulate him for becoming a deputy.

A former Mohave County Sheriff’s deputy is scheduled to be arraigned later this month on charges of sexual conduct with a minor.

Andrew J. Sundberg, 22, is expected to appear in Mohave Superior Court on Oct. 21 to hear the charges against him and enter a plea to the alleged offense. He will be represented at the hearing by attorney Shawn Hamp.

Sundberg was arrested Aug. 31, after accusations arose that he inappropriately touched a 15-year-old girl. Mohave County investigators said that the incident occurred at a party held at a Kingman residence in late June, when both Sundberg and the victim were allegedly intoxicated.

According to investigators, the victim was associated with Sundberg through mutual friends.

When questioned in the case by Kingman police detectives, Sundberg allegedly admitted to his involvement in the incident.

Sundberg was initially booked into Mohave County Jail prior to an initial court appearance. Sundberg was himself a corrections officer at the facility from 2018 to 2020. He was ultimately released from custody on his own recognizance.
