Kuna police arrested 26-year-old man Friday for having illegal sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl last month. Derek Logan Prano is charged with a felony count of sexual battery of a minor child 16 to 17 years old.
Kuna police began their investigation Friday morning after getting a tip from a third party. By that afternoon, police had Prano in custody.
At the time of his arrest, Prano had texted the girl asking her to cut school and meet him at his Kuna-area home.
The girl met Prano at a Jackson’s convenience store in early May. Prano admitted Friday that he had illegal sexual contact with the girl and knew she was 16 years old.
The crime of sexual battery is punishable by up to life in prison. A preliminary hearing for Prano will be set for later this month.
