David Everett Leibowitz was arrested and is facing several charges of sex-related acts with a minor.

RIVERSIDE – A Sun City man has been charged by the Riverside County District Attorney's Office with nine felony counts involving sex crimes with a minor.

David Everett Leibowitz, 40, was arrested on Aug. 13, and is facing numerous charges including sodomy by force or duress, oral copulation by force or duress, and inducing or persuading a minor to engage in a commercial sex act. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 5, at 8:30 a.m. in Dept. 61 at the Hall of Justice in Riverside.

If convicted as currently charged, Leibowitz faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. He was convicted in 2004 in Riverside County Superior Court of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 14.

An investigation by the Murrieta Police Department and District Attorney's investigators found that Leibowitz met the victim in this current case through a dating website in 2015 when the victim was under the age of 18. Leibowitz is charged with committing multiple violent sex acts with the underage boy. It is also charged that Leibowitz had other men come to the residence and have sex with the minor.

It is believed that Leibowitz may have contacted and met other possible victims online. The DA's Office is asking that anyone who believes they may have information about additional crimes committed by or be victims of David Everett Leibowitz to please contact our office or the Murrieta Police Department.

Anyone with additional information can contact DA Investigator Sean Freeman at (951) 955-5400 or Murrieta police Detective Jason Jones at (951) 304-2677 ext. 6809.
