WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A former North Texas elementary school principal has been convicted following his arrest in July for trying to arrange a sexual tryst with a teenage boy in South Florida.

Federal prosecutors say 54-year-old Stephen Anthony Paulsen of Fort Worth, Texas, was convicted Thursday of enticing a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity. He faces a sentence of at least 10 years.

Paulsen was working as a principal in Arlington, Texas, at the time of his arrest.

Prosecutors say he used a social-networking site to send sexually explicit messages to a person he believed to be a 15-year-old. The recipient of the messages was actually an undercover officer.

Paulsen was in Florida visiting family when he was arrested in Boynton Beach as he attempted to meet the boy, who he believed to be home alone.
