PHOENIX -- A Goodyear police detective is accused of having sex with a girl starting in 2003 when she was 12.

KPHO-TV reports 52-year-old Jose Jesus Roman was arrested by Maricopa County sheriff's deputies at Goodyear's patrol station.

He's being held without bail on suspicion of multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor, molestation of a child, sexual abuse and indecent exposure.

The now 22-year-old woman told police Roman allegedly molested her and had sex with her at his home in Tonopah and at another home in Glendale from 2003 to 2006.

Roman has denied the allegations and taken a polygraph examination.

The 19-year department veteran has been unpaid administrative leave since May 10 when Goodyear police became aware of the alleged crimes.

It's unclear if Roman has a lawyer.
