SEAL BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) — Police are looking for additional victims of an attorney accused of soliciting sex from underage girls he met on the internet.

Arturo Fernando Shaw III Gutierrez, 36, was arrested Saturday while waiting for a young girl he had arranged to meet at the Seal Beach pier for sexual purposes.

What Gutierrez didn’t know was that the “minor girl” was actually an undercover officer.

The attorney first came under investigation after the parents of a young girl turned over online conversations between Gutierrez and their daughter.

During a search for his residence in Oak View, investigators uncovered evidence that led them to believe that Gutierrez may have other victims.

Gutierrez was arrested and booked for suspicion of contacting a minor with intent to commit a lewd act and arranging to meet a minor for a lewd act.

He is being held on $50,000 bail.
