HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man charged with electronic enticement of a child has been found guilty on all counts.

On Monday, a judge found Spencer Gouveia guilty on one count of electronic enticement of a child and two counts of indecent electronic display to a child.

The judge decided the case after Gouveia waived his right to a jury trial.

Police arrested Gouveia when he was 22 years old in the parking lot of King Intermediate School in 2009.

Gouveia thought he was chatting online with a 14-year-old girl and arranged to meet her for sex.

He was actually talking to an undercover officer.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 2.

Gouveia faces a mandatory 10-year prison term.
