TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The former coordinator of a Florida Legislature teenage page program has been convicted of soliciting sex from an undercover investigator he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

Michael Chmielewski now faces a sentence of between 10 years and life in prison after his conviction Friday in federal court in Tallahassee.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat , Chmielewski was convicted of attempted enticement of a minor after a three-day trial. He had been arrested in February after he responded to a Craigslist ad from an undercover officer posing as a 14-year-old girl. They discussed sexual activity and he was arrested when he traveled to meet her.

Chmielewski was fired after his arrest. He oversaw a program that recruits 300 teenagers each year to work as aides and messengers for the state House.
