Steven Fernandez was embroiled in a controversy recently when he was arrested along with Jose Barajas and KeelanDaddonthe allegation that they had sexually exploited a 12-year-old girl. The arrest has been a result of an operation that had been planned and executed over a month when reports first reached the police that the three had been trying to entice young girls to carry out sexual acts in videos. The girls were made to agree to do these acts in return for being introduced to famous performers who could help them appear in MTV videos. The police sent a 12-year-old girl as a decoy and arrested the three when she was invited to an abandoned place for carrying out sexual acts. As the girl’s age was less than 14 years it constitutes a felony for which Fernandez may have to spend 8 years in jail. Even though he is a minor, his name was released by the police in the hope that more girls would come forward and testify against him. Till now, four more girls aged 16 and under have come forward to report that they were enamored by his fame and popularity and wanted to make a name for themselves by working with him. Instead they were assaulted by the three.
