A former musician with the Minnesota band Owl City is charged with criminal sexual contact and trying to lure a 14-year-old girl to his hotel room in 2013.
Danny Jorgensen, 30, of Minneapolis, was indicted Tuesday by a grand jury in Atlantic County, New Jersey, on charges of attempting to lure or entice a child, and fourth-degree criminal sexual contact, a news release says.
Prosecutors claim Jorgensen had made contact with the girl on the Internet and by phone, encouraging her to come to Atlantic City where the band was touring. Authorities say he engaged in criminal sexual contact with the girl on the beach and then attempted to lure her to his hotel room and to the band's tour bus to have sex, the release notes.
Bail was set at $100,000 Tuesday, the release says. He was originally charged on April 28 by the Atlantic City Police Department, the release says.
If convicted, Jorgensen faces five to 10 years in prison for the luring charge, as well as 18 months for the criminal sexual contact charge.
