Child molester facing new set of sex charges

The son of a former Tucson mayor who is serving more than 23 years in prison for child molestation and luring a minor for sexual exploitation is back in jail on new charges.

William James Neilson Corbett, 52, is expected to be arraigned today after being arrested Wednesday.

Corbett is charged with seven counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, according to Pima County Jail records.

Corbett was convicted in August of child molestation and sexual assault of a minor and sentenced in September to 20.5 years. He was convicted separately of luring a minor for sexual exploitation and was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison.

Tucson police did not have details of the new arrest Thursday.

Corbett worked as a bailiff for several years when his father, former Mayor James Corbett, was Pima County Superior Court clerk in the 1990s.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
