Mays Landing - A former backing musician for electronica act Owl City has been charged with criminal sexual contact and attempting to lure a 14-year-old girl to his hotel room while they were playing in Atlantic City in 2013.

Thirty-year-old Daniel Jorgensen, of Minneapolis, was indicted on Tuesday by a grand jury in Atlantic County, New Jersey.

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. A spokesperson for Owl City didn't immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.
