LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A former village board chairman is scheduled to be sentenced next month for child enticement.

Court records say 56-year-old Steven Klingelhoefer pleaded guilty to enticement with an electronic communication device and to possession of child pornography. He entered the pleas after prosecutors lowered the enticement charge. His sentencing is set for June 21.

He resigned in November as chairman of the Amherst Village Board.

Prosecutors say Klingelhoefer tried to arrange a sexual encounter with a 15-year-old girl in Lincoln, where he was arrested on Nov. 20. Authorities say the person he was exchanging emails and text messages with was actually an undercover officer working for the Nebraska attorney general’s office.
