Fountain Valley man, 71, arrested on multiple sex charges


Fountain Valley police arrested Donald Roy Shipley on Wednesday for crimes they said happened in 2008 and 2009. Police said Shipley was sharing a home with a woman and a 10-year-old girl when he committed lewd acts against the little girl. He is also accused of raping the girl's 10-year-old friend.

Police said they initially investigated Shipley for possession of child pornography. He is accused of being in possession of over a dozen pornographic images of young girls between 10 and 13 years old. Many of the photos appeared to be taken in his home.

Shipley is being held on $1 million bail. He could face 40 years in prison if he is convicted.

Anyone with additional information or may have been a victim was asked to contact Fountain Valley detectives at (714) 593-4480 or (714) 347-8794.
