LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- An Arizona man is facing federal charges in connection with an investigation into child pornography in New Mexico.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the district of New Mexico says 19-year-old Noah John Carney of Phoenix made his initial court appearance Tuesday in Las Cruces.

According to a criminal complaint, Carney is accused of asking a 13-year-old girl he met through an Internet game to send him naked photos of herself. He's also accused of sending the girl a naked photo of himself and of inquiring about meeting the child at a hotel near her home.

Carney was arrested in Phoenix last month. He was transferred to Las Cruces on Monday.

If convicted, federal prosecutors say he could face an enhanced sentence since he was previously convicted of a sex-related offense.
