A Grand Junction man finds himself behind bars after taking nude photographs of an underage female for a subscription website.
The Grand Junction Police Department arrested Kevin DeWayne Renfro, 35, on charges of sexual exploitation of a child, human trafficking of juveniles, and child prostitution.
A 17-year-old female told authorities that she was approached by Renfro in the 1200 block of North Avenue and offered to pay her for photographs to place on his website. Renfro took the female to the Orchard Mesa Cemetry the next day where he provided her with a schedule III/IV narcotic and took multiple nude photographs.
