PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix police released the interrogation video Wednesday of former Phoenix police Detective Christopher J. Wilson.

Wilson was arrested in August 2012 for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy.

The video shows Wilson sitting in an interrogation room wearing shorts, a white T-shirt and a ball cap. Those are the clothes he was arrested in about 30 minutes prior. He was also in handcuffs.

During the interview Wilson admits to engaging in sex acts with two teens that he admitted he knew were under 18. The tryst between the three of them occurred at the older teen's apartment.

"I knew he was younger. I thought he was 15, 16," said Wilson referring to the younger teen.

Much of the audio on the tape is redacted, due to the explicit nature of the crime and the ages of the alleged victims.

Wilson cooperated fully with the detective, was polite and at one point said that he would tell him whatever he needed to know.

Wilson met the older teen while he was assigned as the Phoenix police liaison to the LGBT community. During the interview, Wilson said it was the older teen who introduced him to the younger teen.

Police reports reveal that Wilson and the older teen had a relationship for a few months. Wilson told the detective during the interview the pair had engaged in sex acts prior to the threesome, several months earlier at Wilson's apartment.

"He was just spending the night because we were going to go to the dentist. And he slept in the bed with me and one thing led to another," said Wilson.

The 13-year veteran of the police force told the detective that the younger teen started flirting with him when the three went out to grab a bite to eat before the sexual encounter.

"He was talking about how hot I was and how good looking. And at one point he did grab me outside," said Wilson.

The detective told Wilson that he did not believe he was a pedophile and believed he got suckered into the teen's admiration of him. Wilson replied that it didn't matter, that it was his fault, that he made a mistake and that he should have known better.

The video also reveals that Wilson was under the impression that the younger teen had "hooked up" with many older guys in the past and knew that he was on gay hookup websites.

At the end of 2013, the Arizona attorney general's office announced it had indicted the older teen, for also having sex with the same younger teen. That older teen is now 20 years old. He remains out of jail pending his court case.

Wilson has been in jail since his arrest. He is expected in court next week for a pre-trail hearing.
