A former Arlington ISD elementary school principal has been
convicted of attempting to solicit a minor online.
Stephen Paulsen, 54, was found guilty in federal court in
Florida on charges from an arrest in July. His trial lasted four days.
Paulsen faced a charge of computer pornography child
exploitation, traveling to meet a minor for unlawful sex act and transmission
of harmful material to a minor.
Paulsen was arrested by Boynton Beach Police in July when he
tried to meet up with the underage boy he thought he was talking to in an
online social network. Paulsen actually was talking to an undercover officer.
