PHOENIX -- A former Phoenix police officer accused of having sex with an underage girl has pleaded not guilty.

Justin Francis LaClere of Gilbert faces of one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.

He was accused in January of having sex with the 17-year-old girl at her family's Scottsdale home while they were away.

Police said Laclere replied to a post the girl made on a mobile app that allowed users to anonymously share photos with text.

The seven-year Phoenix police veteran resigned from the department after his arrest.
