The power of the Internet turns up another creepy case of child predators locally. Fortunately, in this case it was the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force purporting to be a fourteen year old girl. Daniel Courtney of Chantilly was charged in the crime.
During the investigation, Courtney began an online relationship with a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force who was posing as a 14-year-old girl in Phoenix, Thompson said.
He sent her explicit, sexual language, exposed himself and propositioned her for sex, police said.
Courtney was charged with numerous counts of luring and aggravated luring of a minor for sexual exploitation, which are Class 2 felonies, and dangerous crimes against children, according to police.
