The investigation began in March after a Burbank mother found text messages between her 16-year-old daughter and the man, who police identified as Hanford probationer Arnold McGovern, Burbank Police Sgt. Claudio Losacco said.

After the girl’s mother found McGovern on the state’s sex offender database, she, along with her daughter, reported the incident to police.

The girl told police that she met the man online in February, after which they met at her Burbank home and had “consensual” sex, Losacco said.
