— A 13-year-old Lake Geneva girl met a Nebraska man on the Internet eight months before he took her to a motel room in Elkhorn, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday in Walworth County Court.

Jacob T. Cambridge, 21, of Lincoln, Neb., is charged with one count of sexual assault of a child younger than 16. He was released from the Walworth County Jail on Dec. 21 after posting a $10,000 cash bond. He appeared in court Thursday with his attorney, according to online court records.

Cambridge on Dec. 19 picked up the girl and took her to a motel where they had sexual contact, according to the complaint.

The Lake Geneva Police Department that evening issued an Amber Alert for the girl. She had last been seen at 4 p.m. Dec. 18 in Lake Geneva.

Police arrested Cambridge on the Dec. 19. If convicted, Cambridge faces $100,000 in fines or 40 years in prison. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 6.
