A Fort Walton Beach man was convicted of traveling to meet a minor to engage in sexual conduct, according to the State Attorney's Office.
Cameron William Ahlsen-Girard, 28, was one of 16 people arrested by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office during a sting in October of 2015.
"The internet operation involved persons who contacted undercover officers who posed as a child. Ahlsen-Girard contacted an undercover officer and initiated online conversations about sex and wanting to meet to engage in sex," officials wrote. "A time was scheduled and Ahlsen-Girard traveled to the location to engage in sex with who he believed was a minor. He was arrested when arriving at the location."
Ahlsen-Girard faces a possible maximum sentence of 15 years prison and designation as a sexual offender when he is sentencing on January 12.
