PHOENIX (AP) - Bond is set at $10,000 for a former Phoenix police officer suspected of having sex with an underage girl who wanted to get pregnant.

Scottsdale police arrested 32-year-old Justin LaClere at his Gilbert home on Friday.

He had his initial court appearance Tuesday and doesn’t have an attorney yet.

LaClere is being held on suspicion of one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.

He’s 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 on cellphone app that allows users to anonymously share photos with text.

The seven-year Phoenix police veteran resigned from the department after his arrest.
