A Boise man accused of lewd conduct with a minor is now facing eight felony charges, according to court documents.
Marco Chi-Cordero, 21, was arrested on a felony warrant Tuesday for one charge of lewd conduct with a minor under 16. A Boise Police Department spokesman said, however, that detectives had evidence of other victims and he could face several more charges.
After his Wednesday arraignment, Chi-Cordero is now charged with eight felonies: four counts of lewd conduct with a child, two counts of enticing children over the internet, and one count each of child exploitation and sexual abuse of a child.
Chi-Cordero is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Dec. 14, according to court documents.

Boise police received reports in December 2015 that Chi-Cordero was engaged in illegal activity with a female minor. BPD’s Special Victims Unit was able to locate evidence that Chi-Cordero and the victim “began chatting online before meeting in person multiple times,” spokesman Ryan Larrondo said in an email.
