Eau Claire (WQOW) – An Eau Claire man caught in a police sex sting will spend a month doing community service work.
That’s part of the sentence handed down for John Wilk on Monday. Judge William Gabler also put him on probation for two years.
Police said last year, Wilk responded to a Craigslist ad posted by an undercover Eau Claire officer pretending to be a 14-year-old girl.
Wilk was arrested after arranging to meet the girl for sex.

Wilk was arrested at the meeting place at Mt. Simon Park. Police say he had a condom with him. He reportedly admitted to police he was there to meet the girl.
If convicted on all charges, he faces up to 105 years in prison.
