A Navajo Nation man is serving nearly 20 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to abusive sexual contact of a 10-year-old girl in his care at a Boys & Girls Club in rural Arizona.

Ty Colin Bia, 27, a former support staff member at the Pinon Boys & Girls Club of the Diné Nation at the Pinon Community School, within the confines of the Navajo Nation Indian Reservation, used his position of power to isolate and repeatedly sexually abused the victim, federal prosecutors said in court documents.

The Pinon club location is run by the Boys & Girls Club of Diné Youth - Many Farms, which is part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Native Services program, according to its website. Administrators from the Diné youth club did not respond to requests seeking comment on the case.

The victim's mother reported the abuse to Navajo police in January 2013 after a family member found a photograph showing Bia's penis on the girl's cellphone, investigators said.

During a health examination with a nurse, the victim disclosed that Bia had touched her genitals in the office of the Pinon Boys & Girls Club in December 2013, according to court documents.

In the December 2012 incident, the victim had arrived early to a basketball tournament at the club and waited in the office alone with Bia, who raped and molested her during that occurrence, according to the criminal complaint. She told investigators that during that incident, Bia locked the office door and covered a window, and that she wanted to tell him to stop but that she was scared he would hurt her if she did.

Bia told federal investigators that he met the juvenile through the course of his employment and that he knew the victim's age because he had seen it on documents. He also admitted to the investigators that he had sent naked photos and sexually explicit text messages to the girl, according to the complaint.

He pleaded guilty on Nov. 13, 2013, in a U.S. District Court of Arizona to one count of abusive sexual contact. He was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison with a life term of supervision by the courts following his release, court documents show.
