Lewd text messages yield conviction for Colorado man

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – Lewd photos and text messages sent by a 21-year-old Highland Ranch man led to a conviction on sexual exploitation charges.

Daniel Zane Rigsby was found guilty by a Colorado Springs jury Friday of sending the messages to a detective posing as a 14-year-old girl.

Rigsby met the unnamed girl on a social networking site in 2007. Authorities were tipped off about the exchanges, and a Colorado Springs detective started posing as the girl.

Rigsby was acquitted of similar charges involving another girl. He faces two to six years in prison in a Sept. 25 sentencing.
