Sentence handed down in 3rd Frodsham related sex case

Anthony Blake Savage

BISBEE – A man arrested in connection to a child sex abuse ring led by former Sierra Vista foster parent David Frodsham has been sentenced for his role in the misconduct.

Anthony Blake Savage, 35, will serve 8 ½ years in prison after he pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual conduct with a minor, sex trafficking in exchange for sexual contact with a minor, and attempting to provide a prohibited drug to a minor.

The sentence requires Savage to register as a sex offender and serve 10 years on probation upon his release from prison in February 2024.

Savage, who was arrested in January 2017, came to the attention of the Sierra Vista Police Department during an investigation of men having sex with a boy under the care of Barbara and David Frodsham.

According to SVPD, other Frodsham-related leads are still being pursued.

Court records show the sex trafficking charge contained in Savage’s plea agreement stems from his admission he performed sexual acts upon David Frodsham in exchange for sexual contact with a minor.

David Frodsham, who worked with the U.S. Department of Defense for several years, is currently serving 17 years in state prison for sexual misconduct offenses dating back to 2015.

A third man, Randall Bischak, is serving 22 years in state prison for sexual exploitation of the same boy. He was also convicted in federal court on child pornography charges.

Bischak was a U.S. Army Specialist assigned to Fort Huachuca at the time of his criminal offenses.
