April 17, 2014

United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Freeman Eugene Jockisch, 69, of Theodore, was convicted this morning of attempting to entice a 15-year old girl on the Internet. Jockisch, formerly a Mobile County Commissioner, was convicted following a one-day trial.

The evidence at trial showed that Jockisch responded to two Internet personal ads in July and November, 2013 from what he believed to be a 15-year old girl. Jockisch was arrested when he showed up to meet the girl in Saraland. The investigation was part of an undercover operation.

United States District Judge Callie V.S. Granade set Jockisch’s sentencing for July 15th at 1:00 p.m. Jockisch faces a mandatory sentence of ten years up to life in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Following his release, Jockisch is subject to supervision by the United States Probation Office for the rest of his life.

The case was investigated by the Saraland Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Maria Murphy and Assistant United States Attorney Sean Costello handled the prosecution on behalf of the United States.
