OMAHA, Neb. -- A 51-year-old Omaha man was convicted of attempted coercion and enticement of a minor on Wednesday. 

The Acting U.S. Attorney said that 51-year-old Wesley T. Vavra was found guilty on Aug. 23 by a jury in federal court in Omaha. 

Following Vavra's conviction for attempted coercion and enticement of a minor, he has a sentencing hearing set for Nov. 21 at 1:30 p.m.

Vavra faces a minimum of 10 years and up to life in prison. 

The court said that between May 2022 and July 16, 2022, Vavra communicated through an app, and through text messages with someone that he though was interested in "open family play dates."

The other user on the app was a law enforcement officer workin in an undercover capacity, pretending to be a father with an eight-year-old child. 

Vavra arranged to meet the person he was texting on July 18, 2022, to engage in sexual acts with the supposed father's child. 

On arrival, Vavra was arrested at the meetup spot in Omaha. 

During the arrest, Vavra's cell phone was seized.

Analysis of his phone reportedly showed that in addition to communicating with the undercover cop, Vavra was also talking with someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl in the same timeframe.

The 13-year-old girl was also a law enforcement officer working in an undercover capacity. 

This case was investigated by the Omaha FBI's Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
