Man nabbed by Facebook guilty of annoying child
June 03, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Roberto Miculax

A San Mateo man charged with soliciting sex from teenagers after two 12-year-olds recognized his photo on a police-posted Facebook entry is facing up to three years in prison after pleading no contest to two charges.

Roberto Miculax, 41, pleaded no contest to one felony count of communicating with a minor in an attempt to commit a lewd act and one misdemeanor count of child annoyance. He will be sentenced July 8 and, regardless of the time imposed, will have to register as a sex offender for life.

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

The investigation began 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.

After police posted the photo, two 12-year-old girls identified Miculax as someone who approached them on different occasions asking for sex.

Miculax remains in custody on $300,000 bail.
