A former Philadelphia Police inspector who has a history of sex offenses involving children has been arrested in connection with trying to lure an 8-year-old girl from her yard in Roxborough last month, police said.
Leo Haley, 72, retired from the department in 1996. In 2010, he was one of three people charged in a child pornography bust after authorities raided his Roxborough home and found hundreds of child-porn videos on his computer.
He pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced to six- to 23 months in prison, records show. He is also listed as a sex offender.
Haley allegedly tried to lure the girl into his car in October. He was arrested Thursday, police said.
