HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A federal jury on Thursday found a 37-year-old Maui man guilty of trying to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.

In October 2017, Nolan Nishida, of Wailuku, messaged an undercover officer he thought was a teenage girl. He made arrangements to meet the girl for sex but was arrested instead.

The FBI and Maui Police Department investigated the case.

Nishida is scheduled to be sentenced on June 15.
