Just when you thought things couldn't get any more shocking...
In December, we reported on the fact that 15 year old YouTuber and skateboarded Steven Fernandez had been arrested following claims he sexually exploited a 12 year old fan. Claiming he'd introduce the young girl to celebrities and allow her to be in a non-existent TV show, Fernandez took advantage of the fan who later came forward to police.
Despite Fernandez being 15, police released his name and image because they feared they were more victims. Sadly, this has turned out to be the case.
Police revealed that further charges will b filed by the end of the month; these charges relate to sexual assault against a further three teenage girls. Police claim that two of the alleged victims are 14 and 16 with another being cited as "younger than 15". It has also been reported that one of the victims went through her experience two years ago, when Fernandez himself was just 13.
