A Jacksonville, Fla., man faces 30 years in prison after his conviction on four counts of computer pornography and attempted child molestation.

An Effingham County jury found Emsud Selmic guilty on Feb. 10 of two counts of computer pornography, one count of criminal attempt to commit aggravated child molestation and one count of criminal attempt to commit child molestation.

Selmic was indicted Sept. 22, 2015, for acts he committed June 29. Selmic was charged with using the Internet to solicit what he believed to be was a minor female for sex and arranging to meet with the 15-year-old, who was in reality an undercover detective, to commit sodomy. He then traveled to the pre-arranged meeting spot, where he was arrested.

Selmic was sentenced to 30 years, with credit from time served, and also was banished from the state, except for Charlton County, on the second count of computer pornography. His sentences for the other three charges were to serve 20 years concurrently to the first sentence.
