PHOENIX (AP) - Scottsdale authorities say a Phoenix police officer is suspected of having sex with an underage girl who wanted to get pregnant.
The Arizona Republic reports (http://bit.ly/1dkXKGq) Scottsdale police arrested 32-year-old Justin LaClere at his Gilbert home on Friday.
He faces one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.
According to police documents, LaClere is accused of having sex with the 17-year-old girl Tuesday at her family's home while they were away.
Police say LaClere replied to a post the girl made Jan. 13 on Whisper, a cellphone app that allows users to anonymously share photos with text.
Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos says LaClere, a seven-year veteran, resigned from the department Friday.
