A former Phoenix officer has pleaded not guilty to felony charges of sexual misconduct with two teenage boys.

Christopher J. Wilson, 43, appeared in court Thursday morning, just a day after the Maricopa County Attorney's Office said it was adding an additional charge to the 10 felony charges he already faces.

Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia said the alleged victims were 14- and 17-year-old Phoenix boys who knowingly entered into a relationship with Wilson. He said Wilson met them through his job as the city's police liaison with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community.

Police said they learned of the relationship when the 14-year-old came forward earlier this month.

The initial court paperwork alleges Wilson and the 17-year-old boy engaged in sexual contact at Wilson's residence and that all three engaged in sexual contact at the apartment of the 17-year-old.

Garcia said Wilson had been carrying on the relationship with the older teen for three months and with the 14-year-old for three weeks. Wilson told police investigators he knew the boys were underage, according to court document.

Wilson was a 13-year veteran of the force and resigned in lieu of being fired. He is not eligible for retirement, Garcia said.

His next court date is scheduled for Oct. 8.
