The Associated Press is reporting that former Owl City member Daniel Jorgensen has been charged with criminal sexual contact and attempting to lure a 14-year-old girl to his hotel room in Atlantic City in 2013.
Authorities say he committed criminal sexual contact on the beach and then tried to lure the girl to his hotel room and the band's tour bus to have sex. Bail was set at $100,000. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney. The second-degree attempted luring charge carries a potential penalty of five to 10 years in prison. Jorgensen played guitar for Owl City.
