Man nabbed by Facebook post enters plea
March 18, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Roberto Miculax

A San Mateo man arrested for soliciting sex from teenagers after two 12-year-olds recognized his photo on a police-posted Facebook entry pleaded not guilty to several charges including attempted child molestation.

Roberto Miculax, 41, is also charged with communicating with a minor in an attempt to commit a lewd act, disorderly conduct and four counts of child annoyance. After entering his plea Friday, Miculax did not waive his right to a speedy trial and was ordered back to court March 26 for a preliminary hearing. He remains in custody on $300,000 bail.

San Mateo police arrested Miculax March 5 after a three-week investigation which culminated in the posting of his photo online and the girls’ subsequent alleged identification.

Police began looking for him after a 15-year-old San Mateo girl reported that at approximately 8 a.m. Feb. 18 a man approached her while standing on North Claremont Street and solicited a sex act. She left and contacted police who searched but couldn’t find the subject. A nearby surveillance camera caught the man’s image which is what police posted on social media outlets seeking the public’s help. The two 12-year-old girls saw the post and identified Miculax as someone who approached them on different occasions asking for sex.
