SPC Cpl. Arland Gaines confirmed Jockisch was arrested and charged with one account of electronic solicitation of a child for sex and one count of traveling to meet a child for sex. Electronic solicitation of a child for sex is a Class B felony, which if he were found guilty could mean imprisonment from two to 20 years. Traveling to meet a child for sex is a class a felony and is punishable by imprisonment from 10 to 99 years if found guilty.

“(Jockisch) was arrested today around noon today,” Gaines said. “I do not believe he has been given bail yet.”

This isn’t Jockisch’s first brush with the law. In 2004 he was convicted on federal charges of lying on tax returns and ethic forms.

He was sentenced to serve 33 months in at a federal work camp near Talladega and was released in 2007.
