Wausau man charged with trying to have sex with girl

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) – A 27-year-old homeless man is behind bars for trying to meet up with a 15-year-old girl to have sex with her just days after being released from jail, according to Marathon County court records.

Jessie Gayle told authorities he planned to meet the child at Wausau’s Riverfront to have sex with her and never see her again, or what he called “hit and miss,” according to court records.

Gayle added he has no respect for women after they have sex, court records said.

He’s been charged with felony use of a computer, or his phone, to facilitate a sex crime.

Cash bond was set at $5,000 and Gayle is not allowed to have contact with anyone under 18 or use the internet.

He’s due back in court later this month.
