Authorities say a Tucson man has been arrested in a sexual exploitation case.

Tucson police said Friday that 28-year-old Jesus Ballesteros is in Pima County Jail.

He's being held on suspicion of aggravated luring of a minor, attempted child prostitution, attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and attempted sexual conduct with a minor.

They say a Tucson woman called 911 on Dec. 29 to say she discovered her 11-year-old daughter was chatting online with an adult man.

Police say the interaction included graphic pictures and sexual conversation between the man and girl.

They also say the man tried to arrange a meeting to have sex with the girl, videotape the encounter and pay her for it.

Ballesteros was arrested Thursday and police say he has prior convictions for sexual offenses.

Ballesteros went by "Ryan Aclown" on Facebook. Parents are advised to check their children's Facebook accounts for contact with "Ryan Aclown."

Further investigation has revealed Ballesteros has made contact with numerous female juveniles with sexual intent, and that includes sharing graphic photographs and discussing topics of a sexual nature, according to Tucson Police.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
