Former Owl City Band Musician Pleads Guilty to Lewdness with a Child

MAYS LANDING- A Minneapolis man and former musician with the band Owl City pleaded guilty before Judge Michael J. Blee on July 10, to fourth degree Lewdness with a Child, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced.
Daniel Jorgensen admitted that he exposed himself in Atlantic City in August of 2013, to K.G., a child under 13 years of age and he being at least four years older than K.G. Blee sentenced Jorgensen to two years of probation to be served in his hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and ordered Jorgensen submit fingerprints and a DNA sample.
Jorgensen, now 32, was originally indicted on August 4, 2015, for charges relating to attempting to lure a child and engaging in criminal sexual contact with K.G. on an Atlantic City Beach, while touring with Owl City approximately four years ago.

During sentencing, the victim addressed the Court explaining the impact the offense has had on her, and how it significantly inhibited her ability to lead a normal teenage life. The Court recognized the traumatic impact the offense had on the victim, and found that there was a significant need to deter the defendant’ behavior, recognizing the defendant had no prior criminal history.
