It's not the sort of thing you want to think about during the holidays - or anytime for that matter - but justice must be served.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office announced today a Grand Junction man has been arrested on numerous felony charges related to the sexual exploitation of a child.

The man has been identified as 60-year-old Dana Head who was arrested and taken into custody on Tuesday. The charges stem from alleged incidents that occurred between October 13, 2020, and November 11, 2020, involving one juvenile.

Charges against Head include the following.

  • Sexual Exploitation of a Child - Creating Sexually Exploitative Material (Class 3 Felony)
  • Sexual Exploitation of a Child - Distributing Sexually Exploitative Material (Class 3 Felony)
  • Sexual Exploitation of a Child - Possession of Sexually Exploitative Material More than Twenty Images (Class 4 Felony)
  • Sexual Assault on a Child (Class 4 Felony)

As of Wednesday, Head was being held in the Mesa County Detention Facility and the investigation is continuing.

It's hard to imagine this stuff going on in Grand Junction, but, it is, and probably more than we know. Our children are precious and we never want to see them hurt or taken advantage of in any way.
