A Sacramento man has been convicted of sexual conduct with a minor who he pursued via social media.
A Yolo County jury today convicted Ronald Vikash Chand, 32, of five counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Chand became involved with the victim when she was 15 years old, according to a Yolo County District Attorney's Office news release.
Authorities said he lied to her about his age and, knowing that she was 15 years old, he pursued her on Facebook and by text messages. On multiple occasions, he picked her up at her high school and engaged in sexual acts with her in his car and at a West Sacramento motel.
Chand is to be sentenced Oct. 22 by Yolo Superior Court Judge Timothy Fall.
