RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAU) - A Tomahawk man will face 25 years in prison after being found guilty of child enticement.
A jury found 23-year-old Abel Jump guilty of child enticement, exposing himself to an underaged girl, and bail jumping. He will also face charges of threatening a judge, which allegedly occurred during a recorded jail phone call.
Jump was accused of propositioning a 16 year old girl over Facebook in June, and jurors saw multiple pages and messages sent to the girl in court on Thursday. Jump contends that those messages were sent by someone else after he started talking to the girl.
A sentencing day in the case has not been set.
