MILLINGTON, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a 51-year-old Millington man has been found guilty on multiple charges of trafficking minors for sex.

The U.S. attorney’s office says Michael Lilley was convicted Tuesday evening in federal court in Memphis.

From May to September 2013, Lilley had four minors engage in commercial sex acts out of his Millington home, van and other locations. The victims were 15-, 16-, and 17-year-old students, some of whom attended Brighton High School and Millington High School.

Prosecutors say Lilley used text messages and explicit photos of the teens to market them to various males willing to pay for sex in Millington, Covington and Atoka. Trafficking victims testified at trial.

Lilley faces 15 years to life in prison at sentencing Dec. 17.
