BANTAM, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man faces extradition to New York where he is accused sending sexually explicit photos of himself to a teenager in the small town of Esperance.

The Register Citizen of Torrington reports (http://bit.ly/UoQGGV ) 43-year-old Jason Callahan of Washington, Connecticut, waived extradition Monday in Bantam Superior Court and will be handed over to New York authorities on Friday.

Police say a relative notified police in June that the teen had been receiving nude photos of Callahan.

Prosecutors say New York authorities are still trying to determine how Callahan met the victim and if there may be additional victims. They have seized two cell phones as evidence in the case.

Callahan is being held in lieu of $500,000 bond. He did not address the charges in court Monday.
