YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - A Yuma police officer has been charged with three felony counts of luring a minor for sexual exploitation even though the 16-year-old victim has repeatedly denied he did anything wrong.

Defense attorney Marlo Arnold told a Yuma Justice of the Peace Tuesday that 25-year-old Ron Anton Ciancimino should have his $110,000 cash-only bond lowered. The request was denied.

Ciancimino was arrested Friday by Yuma County sheriff's deputies and formally charged Tuesday. The Yuma Sun reports (http://bit.ly/16IA10P ) the case developed last week after deputies were called to a local hospital about a girl who had been a victim of a possible sexual offense.

Deputies later arrested 27-year-old Joshua Jonathan Alpizar. They say he admitted to the allegations but details haven't been released by the sheriff's office.
