Pinal County, Arizona (CNN) An Arizona High School senior accused of a series of sex crimes has been indicted by a grand jury.

Prosecutors broke down the charges against 18-year-old Tyler Kost Thursday afternoon.

"My office filed an indictment with the court after receiving a true bill from the grand jury. That indictment included 27 counts, and these range from sexual abuse to sexual assault," said Lando Voyles, Prosecutor.

The indictment includes 11 girls ranging in age from 12 to 17.

Kost is scheduled to be arraigned later this month and faces a minimum of 147 years in prison if convicted of all counts.

His attorney has criticized the Pinal County Sheriff's Office's handling of the case and asked for a change of venue.
