BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A 33-year-old man was charged earlier this month with engaging in sex acts with a child 10 years old or younger.

Ivan Espinoza is being held on $1 million bail and has pleaded not guilty to three felony charges, according to court records.

Police began investigating after the child told a relative about the alleged abuse, according to a search warrant filed in the case. Officers arrested Espinoza and seized a cellphone, among other items.

Espinoza is due back in court Friday.
