SIERRA VISTA — A Fort Huachuca soldier has been arrested after California authorities issued a felony “fugitive from justice” warrant stemming from numerous charges of sexual conduct with a minor.

Sierra Vista Justice Court said 37-year-old Spc. Jason W. Scofield was arrested at the judge advocate general office on post Tuesday afternoon.

The court said the sex-related charges were filed against Scofield by the Fullerton, Calif., Police Department.

Fort Huachuca media relations officer Tanja Linton said Scofield joined the Army on June 8. He was assigned to the Company E, 309th Military Intelligence Battalion since Aug. 22.

Cochise County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carol Capas said Scofield had an initial appearance in court in Sierra Vista on Wednesday, during which his bond was set at $250,000.

Scofield was booked into the county jail.
