15 year old YouTuber Steven Fernandez has been arrested after allegedly sexually exploiting a 12 year old girl. The skateboarder turned YouTuber has over 700,000 subscribers and has been on YouTube since 2012.
It’s alleged that Fernandez said he’d introduce his victim to celebrities and allow her to appear in a non-existent MTV show in exchange for sexual acts. It’s believed the victim was a fan. As well as Steven’s arrest, his 22 year old manager and a 27 year old fellow skateboarder have also been arrested on sexual exploitation charges.
The news came to light via TMZ on Thursday but it’s believed the arrests took place towards the start of December. This isn’t the first time Fernandez has experienced controversy, a recent video where he “picked up girls” was slated on social media.
We’ll have more as the story develops.
