A South Bend youth hockey coach pleaded guilty to soliciting a minor in Niles.

The man, Christien Joubert, allegedly arranged to meet with an underage girl at a hotel, through an online website, on May 12.

Little did he know, he was actually talking with a police officer.

Leader Publications reports that when Joubert arrived to the hotel, he knocked on the door and was face to face with an officer.

He told police he also sent explicit photos to the person.

Joubert pleaded guilty last week to accosting a minor for immoral purposes and using a computer or the internet to commit a crime.

He could face up to four years in prison for each charge and is set to be sentenced on September 26.
