Marshals arrest local teen in Florida



An 18-year-old local man who allegedly impregnated a 14-year-old girl has been arrested in Florida.

According to a YCSO news release, Cody Williams-Claxton fled Arizona as detectives were completing their investigation into the alleged August 2012 incident. A warrant was subsequently issued charging him with sexual conduct with a minor younger than 15.

The agency learned Wednesday that Williams-Claxton had been located and arrested by U.S. Marshals at an undisclosed location in Florida. He is in custody, pending extradition to Arizona, on $150,000 bond.
