Charges against 34-year-old Lee Moir, of Toronto, Ontario, include luring a child under 16, manufacturing child pornography and extortion.
According to the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, Moir initially posed as the 18-year-old pop sensation on Facebook.
A Toronto man accused of posing as teen idol Justin Bieber and coaxing a young girl to perform sex acts online may have victims in up to five countries, prosecutors in the United States said Wednesday.
Lee Moir, 34, is already facing a slew of child pornography charges in connection with his alleged interactions with a 12-year-old girl from New Jersey, but officials in that state suspect his activities had a much wider scope.
"It is an ongoing investigation for us, but we believe that there may be other victims both in the United States and beyond," Essex County prosecutor spokeswoman Katherine Carter said in a telephone interview.
He is believed to have been in contact with young girls in Canada, Australia, France and the Philippines, she said, adding there have been no charges laid in connection with those alleged contacts.
