NEW YORK (AP) - An off-duty New York City police officer has been arrested on sex charges in connection with a 16-year-old girl.

Police say 38-year-old Vladimir Sosa was arrested Tuesday on rape, sexual abuse, criminal sex act and other charges. He is assigned to the 46th Precinct in the Bronx.

Officials say Sosa attended the same church as the alleged victim.

During Sosa’s arraignment Tuesday evening, Sosa’s attorneys said he had no prior criminal record and that the charges came a year after the alleged incidents. His next court appearance is April 17.

The NYPD says Sosa is expected to be suspended without pay.
