(KUTV) - Kyle Celis Navarrete, 32, a Provo photographer, was charged with nine felonies for sexually abusing three teenage boys on photo shoots over the last several months.

Police said Navarrete told the boys they needed to to be photographed in their underwear to further their modeling careers. It's alleged he then touched them inappropriately, and in one case, performed a sexual act on a minor.

According to court documents, Navarrete was charged Tuesday in 4th District Court with forcible sodomy, a first-degree felony; four counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony; and four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a 16- or 17-year-old, a third-degree felony.
