Federal prosecutors say Clifford Wares was convicted Tuesday on several counts, including production of child pornography. The 43-year-old Warwick man faces several decades in prison when he's sentenced June 27.

Prosecutors say Wares communicated online with a 13-year-old New Jersey girl for three months in 2011. They say he used the fake Facebook account to pretend to be a child she knew and had her send photos and videos of herself engaging in sex acts.

Prosecutors say Wares also met a 14-year-old girl online that year and drove to New Jersey to engage in sex acts with her.
