A Republican state lawmaker from Arizona who resigned this week was accused of paying teen boys for sex in the 1980s, according to police records.
Representative David Stringer, 71, who resigned two days before the details of the probe were publicized Friday, was arrested in 1983 after one of his alleged victims went to police, claiming he visited the then-35-year-old’s apartment at least 10 times for sex. Stringer allegedly paid the boys $10 after he performed oral sex on them and had them perform the same sex act on him, the Arizona Republic reported. Stringer turned himself in on Sept. 15, 1983, on eight unspecified sex charges. Stringer was ordered to perform 208 hours of community service and treatment for sex offenders.
