Eau Claire man falls for police sting, faces child sex charges

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - An Eau Claire man could spend up to 85 years behind bars for allegedly trying to set up a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl. 

Jeffrey Boley, who is 55, is charged with three felonies: using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, child enticement, and attempted sexual assault of a child under the age of 16.

According to the criminal complaint, Boley began communicating with an undercover police officer posing as a 14-year-old girl in November. He was arrested in the Shopko parking lot in Eau Claire, where he had arranged to meet up with her. 

Boley was in court Thursday for his initial appearance.
