LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 44-year-old former varsity girl's high school softball coach has been convicted in Las Vegas of federal child sex exploitation charges.

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden said Thursday that a jury found Albert Silva Hernandez Jr. guilty of eight charges after a three-day trial.

Hernandez faces a minimum of 15 years in prison at sentencing Aug. 5, and could also face up to $2 million in fines.

His attorneys didn't immediately respond to messages.

Bogden says Hernandez had sex with a 17-year-old player on the team and exchanged sexually explicit text messages and cell phone photos with her from December 2011 to February 2012.

Clark County School District police arrested Hernandez in May.

He is a former coach at Silverado High School in Henderson, and also coached youth softball.
