Alta Sierra man arrested on sex charges

Giulio Gianmarco

An Alta Sierra man was arrested Saturday on charges involving sex with a minor, after an investigation that began this summer.

Nevada County Sheriff’s detectives served an arrest warrant on Giulio Anthony Gianmarco, 24, at his residence on Judith Court Saturday, said Lt. Bill Smethers.

The investigation involved a 15-year-old boy who reportedly met the man on a dating website, and sparked a search of Gianmarco’s residence in August, Smethers said.

Gianmarco was booked into county jail on charges of oral copulation, unlawful contact with a minor, lewd acts with a child, and sodomy by use of force; he was being held in lieu of $250,000.
