Virginia Man Arrested, Extradited In Arizona Sex Case

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona authorities say a Virginia man has been extradited to Phoenix to face charges in a sexual exploitation case.
    
Phoenix police said Friday that 43-year-old Daniel J. Courtney has been booked into the Maricopa County Jail.
    
He's being held on suspicion of numerous counts of luring and aggravated luring of a minor for sexual exploitation.
    
Phoenix police detectives from the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force conducted an investigation last August and September that led them to Courtney, of Chantilly, Va.
    
Authorities say Courtney had an electronic relationship with who he thought was a 14-year-old girl in Phoenix and allegedly propositioned her for sex.
    
But they say he actually was communicating with a task force member.
    
Police didn't immediately know whether Courtney has legal representation yet for his case.
