A Minneapolis man and former musician with the band Owl City has pleaded guilty in New Jersey to lewdness with a child. According to Pioneer Press, Jorgensen was initially charged in 2015 with attempting to lure the child and engage in sexual activity with her at a beach in Atlantic City.

The musician, now aged 32, admitted before the court that he exposed himself to the girl.

A judge sentenced Jorgensen to serve two years' probation in Minneapolis. On Aug. 29, 2013, the date of the incident, Jorgensen was performing with Owl City at the House of Blues at the former Showboat Casino.

He is also ordered to submit his fingerprints and a DNA sample.

Jorgensen played guitar, vibraphone and bass with the electronica group created by musician Adam Young.

Authorities did not release the name of the victim and it remains unclear if she was the one who posted the warning online.

Owl City had a 2009 hit with the song 'Fireflies', and in 2012, had a number one in several countries with the Carly Rae Jepsen collaboration 'Good Time'.

"In the disputed portion of the lyrics, Young sings, "'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs/ From 10,000 lightning bugs/ As they tried to teach me how to dance".

"I was the recipient of 1,000 hugs from 10,000 lightning bugs for a grand total of 10,000,000 hugs", Young explained in reply. Listen to the song below, with the lyric in question popping up at the 1:08 mark.

"By the same token, a gathering of lightning bugs in such vast numbers form a sort of "swarm, ' and a swam can collectively surround a human and deliver a 'hug" that a single firefly, acting according to the dictates of his own conscience, simply cannot".
