Plea agreement reached in child abuse, sex assault case

From the Las Vegas Optic

A trial slated to begin this month for a case involving a Luna Community College employee will not be necessary after a plea agreement was recently reached.

Christopher M. Chavez, 39, of Las Vegas, pleaded guilty to interference with communications and attempting to commit false imprisonment, both misdemeanors.

Following his initial arrest in September 2018, Chavez was charged with three felonies: criminal sexual penetration, abuse of a child and false imprisonment. He was also charged with three misdemeanors: aggravated battery on a household member, and two counts of interference with communications. Under the plea deal, those charges will be dismissed, provided Chavez does not violate the terms of the agreement.
