VALLEJO, Calif. - A former Vallejo Elementary school teacher faces at least 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Thursday to attempted online enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott said in a press release.
37-year-old Andrew Lund of Vallejo was arrested in April 2018 after it was revealed that Lund engaged in online sexual chats with a person whom he believed to be a 14-year-old girl, who was actually an undercover agent.
At the time he attempted to entice the 14-year-old girl, Lund was an elementary school teacher in Vallejo.
He is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley on Dec. 5.
Lund is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison, as well as a fine up to $250,000, McGregor said in a press release.
This case is the product of an investigation by the Homeland Security Investigations and the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Amy Schuller Hitchcock is prosecuting the case.
