PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Authorities say a northern Arizona man accused of
impregnating a 14-year-old girl has been arrested in Florida.
Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials said they were notified Wednesday by the
U.S. Marshals Service that 18-year-old Cody Williams-Claxton is in custody. It
wasn’t immediately clear where in Florida he was arrested.
Authorities say Williams-Claxton is being held on a $150,000 bond pending
extradition to Arizona.
Sheriff’s officials say Williams-Claxton allegedly has sex with the underage
girl in August 2012, which resulted in a pregnancy.
When authorities were prepared to charge him in the case last December, they
found Williams-Claxton had fled Arizona.
A warrant was issued for his arrest on suspicion of sexual conduct with a minor
under the age of 15.
