Aaron Stackhouse has a thing for 8-year-olds -- boys, and girls.
Stackhouse was arrested yesterday for sexually abusing the 8-year-old daughter of a woman he'd sexually abused when she was a child.
Police also say Stackhouse abused the woman's two brothers -- each of whom are now adults.
The most-recent victim, the 8-year-old girl, told her mother that Stackhouse, a "family friend," had been sexually abusing her since October. The girl's mother -- after having been abused at the hands of Stackhouse herself -- finally called police.
The abuse is pretty sickening -- it includes oral, vaginal, and anal sex with the young girl.
In one case, while under a blanket on a couch as the girl's aunt and uncle were in the room, Stackhouse had vaginal sex with the girl.
The girl's family members, police say, were not aware of the abuse of the 8-year-old.
During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Stackhouse had abused the girl's mother and two uncles starting when they were about 8 years old. They are now each in their mid 20s.

In one instance, Stackhouse showed the children pornography and tried to get a male victim to have sex with his sister before sexually abusing him.
In a confrontation call with the girl's mother -- also a victim -- Stackhouse said he regretted abusing the children. He said he didn't know why he did it. However, he didn't want to get into detail over the phone because someone might be listening in and use the information against him.
Stackhouse faces 37 counts of sexual conduct with a minor, 4 counts of child molestation, 5 counts of furnishing harmful materials to a minor, one count of sexual abuse, one count of contributing to delinquency of minor.
He's been booked into a Maricopa County jail with no bond.
