FLORENCE, AZ (CBS5) -

A 51-year-old Casa Grande man has been indicted on 24 sex-related crimes involving girls 8 to 16 years old over a period of almost 20 years, according to the Pinal County Attorney's Office.

Luis Martinez was arraigned in Pinal County Superior Court on Friday morning for the crimes that allegedly occurred in or near Casa Grande from 1987 through 2006, according to the county attorney's office.

Martinez was indicted on 10 counts of felony child molestation, six counts of felony sexual conduct with a minor, six counts of felony sexual abuse, one count of indecent exposure and one count of sexual assault.

If convicted, Martinez could face up to 210 years in prison, based on the inclusion of three potential life sentences due to victims' ages at the time of the accused offenses, according to the county attorney's office.
