REDWOOD CITY -- A 41-year-old man was convicted Monday of soliciting a teenage girl for sex on a San Mateo street in February, authorities said.
Roberto "Guadalupe" Miculax, 41, pleaded no contest to multiple sex charges on condition he spend no more than three years in prison, prosecutors said. He has been in custody at San Mateo County Jail since March 5, when surveillance footage released on Facebook led two additional victims to step forward.
In the Feb. 25, incident, Miculax reportedly approached a 15-year-old girl about 8:30 a.m. on North Claremont Street and made lewd requests to her in Spanish, San Mateo police Sgt. Dave Norris said. He fled the area after she refused his request, and responding officers were unable to locate him.
The other victims, two 12-year-old girls, told investigators that Miculax had made the same kind of inappropriate contact with them in the weeks leading up to the incident on North Claremont, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
Surveillance photos taken at a North Claremont business were posted on various news sites and social media platforms, and Miculax contacted police knowing he was wanted for questioning, Norris said. He was arrested on charges of solicitation for sex in public, child annoyance and assault with the intent to commit a sex crime.
Miculax remains in custody on $300,000 bail and will return to court July 8 to receive his sentence.
