WESTMINSTER (CNS) - A 55-year-old convicted sex offender pleaded guilty Wednesday to molesting a 16-year-old girl in Fountain Valley.

Scott Robert Moore pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child younger than 18, according to court records. He was charged in March with a felony count of annoying or molesting a child after a specific prior sex conviction. Moore is scheduled to be sentenced July 7.

When police did a "compliance check" at his residence in March, investigators said they learned Moore had sexually battered a 16-year-old girl, police said. Moore has a prior conviction for lewd acts on a child in December 1991, according to court records.
