According to an indictment, which was e-mailed to members of the news media May 8, Mr. Kost is accused of:
•three counts sexual abuse with a minor, under the age of 15,
•six counts sexual conduct with a minor, under the age of 15,
•one counts child molestation, a child under 15,
•seven counts se
xual assault with a minor, 15 or older,
•seven counts sexual abuse with a minor, 15 or older and
•three counts sexual conduct with a minor, 15 or older.
If the defendant were found guilty on all 27 counts, he would face a sentencing exposure between 147 years and up to 335.75 years in
prison, according to the county attorney’s office.
Following the indictment, a grand jury added a new charge when it indicted Kost on a charge of sexual conduct with a minor following allegations made by a 14-year-old girl earlier this month. She said Kost attacked her on a couch at his San Tan Valley house while they watched a movie and his parents were home, investigators said. It's unknown when the alleged attack happened.
