NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City police sergeant has been arrested on rape charges after authorities say he maintained an inappropriate sexual relationship with a teenager.

Joel Doseau pleaded not guilty Wednesday to rape, sex abuse and other charges.

A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press 43-year-old Doseau met the teen online in 2007, when she was 14, and asked her to send him a nude photo. The official says the two met in person in 2008 and maintained a sexual relationship for three years. Police learned of the relationship recently when the teen came forward to report it.

The official was not authorized to discuss the details of the arrest and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Doseau’s union representative did not respond to a request for comment.
