Man sentenced for soliciting sex from teens
July 25, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Roberto Miculax

A San Mateo man identified through a police Facebook page as the person soliciting teenage girls on the street for sex was sentenced Thursday to 18 months in prison and must register for life as a sex offender.

Roberto Miculax, 41, faced up to three years prison after pleading no contest last month on the morning of his trial to one felony count of communicating with a minor in an attempt to commit a lewd act and one misdemeanor count of child annoyance. Judge Jonathan Karesh said at the first sentencing hearing earlier this month he was torn between sending Miculax to prison or give him local jail time and probation. After taking until Thursday to think it over, Karesh opted for the low prison term.

San Mateo police arrested Miculax March 5, 2013, after a three-week investigation stemming from a 15-year-old girls’ report that a man approached her Feb. 18 on North Claremont Street and solicited a sex act. She left and contacted police, who searched but couldn’t find the subject.

San Mateo police posted on its Facebook page a photo from a nearby surveillance camera and the girls’ subsequent alleged identification.

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

Miculax had been held on $300,000 bail.
