CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a Clovis man has been convicted in a child solicitation case.

Prosecutors announced Wednesday that a jury in Clovis found 41-year-old Richard Schaublin guilty of soliciting a child by using an electronic device for the purposes of engaging in a sexual act.

Sentencing for Schaublin will be set for next week and prosecutors say he faces three years in prison.

Authorities said the charges stemmed from a 2011 undercover operation by the Curry County Sheriff's Office.

They said Schaublin began an online relationship with what he believed to be a 15-year-old girl.

Authorities say he arranged to meet the teen with plans to take her to his home for a sexual encounter.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Schaublin at the pre-arranged meeting place on Oct. 6, 2011.
