Austin County Man Gets 5 Years in Online Solicitation Case

By  | 

An Austin County man is headed to jail after pleading guilty Monday to online solicitation of a minor.

Steve Huebner of Industry was arrested in March after trying to meet who he thought was a teenage girl he'd met online.

The girl turned out to be a Bryan police officer.

Huebner, 41, was sentenced to two years in a state jail and five years in prison. The sentences will run concurrently.

It is not known when Huebner could be eligible for parole, but he will have to register as a sex offender.
