Minnesota Man Indicted for Attempting to Lure 14-year old Female to Hotel

ATLANTIC CITY – A Minnesota man was indicted yesterday for attempting to lure a 14- year-old female to a hotel room with the purpose of committing a crime against her, and for engaging in criminal sexual contact, Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain announced.
Yesterday morning, August 4, 2015, an Atlantic County Grand Jury indicted Daniel P. Jorgensen, 30, of the 1000 block of Hackmann Circle NE, Minneapolis, MN on two counts:

  • 1. Attempt to Lure or Entice a Child—a crime of the 2nd degree, and 
  • 2. Criminal Sexual Contact—a crime of the 4th degree. 
The State alleges that Jorgensen made contact with the juvenile on the internet and by cellular phone, and encouraged her to come to Atlantic City where he was working as a musician and band manager on August 29, 2013. The State further alleges that Jorgensen committed the criminal sexual contact on an Atlantic City beach, and tried to lure the girl to a hotel room and to the band’s tour bus, with the purpose of having sexual intercourse. 
An investigation by the Atlantic City Police Department led to the charges on April 28, 2015. 
After indictment, Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Bernard E. DeLury set bail on the warrant upon indictment at $100,000 cash or bond. 
Assistant Prosecutor Harlee Stein represented the State in the case. 
A crime of the 2nd degree carries a potential penalty of 5-10 years in New Jersey State prison; a 4th degree crime carries a potential penalty of 18 months imprisonment. 
The victim’s name is not being released.
These indictments are merely accusations and not proof of guilt. In all criminal cases, an indicted defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
