PHOENIX — An Arizona woman is facing multiple felony charges for allegedly sending pornographic pictures of herself to a teenage boy and attempting to lure him into a sexual relationship, the state attorney general’s office announced Friday.

Investigators said Lisa Corn, 33, first contacted the 14-year-old on headsets while playing online Xbox video games.

Corn was indicted by a grand jury on 24 counts, including aggravated luring a minor for sexual exploitation and furnishing obscene materials to a minor.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Cybercrimes Unit launched an investigation last month after the boy’s father said Corn sent his son pictures and messages of a sexual nature.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office said there may be additional victims and asked anyone with information to call 602-542-3881.

The office offered the following suggestions to parents for online gaming safety:

• Set up privacy settings to control who can contact their child.

• Play online games with their kids to understand how they work.

• Know your child’s passwords and regularly check the history of each gaming device.

• Beware of chat rooms, which can have private, unrestricted sections.
