YUMA, Ariz. — A former Yuma police officer will be able move despite awaiting trial on one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation.

The Yuma Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1fZIuGr) that a Yuma County Superior Court judge on Friday granted the request made by 25-year-old Ron Anton Ciancimino.

The judge ordered that Ciancimino check in with probation officials every week.

Michael Donovan, Ciancimino's defense attorney, says his client wants to move to his parents' home in Safford because he can't find employment and had to sell his house.

Ciancimino is scheduled to go on trial Oct. 7.

Prosecutors say Ciancimino solicited sexual conduct from a 16-year-old girl.

Donovan says sexually explicit photos of the victim were taken by another defendant and the victim has made statements in support of Ciancimino.
