OMAHA, NEB. (AP) - A Nebraska man who said investigators entrapped him with computer messages and emoticons has lost his appeal of a child enticement conviction.

In a ruling released Friday, the Nebraska Supreme Court upheld James Pischel’s conviction and sentence of one to two years for exchanging online messages with a detective posing as a 15-year-old girl.

Pischel’s appeal said he told Detective Ed Sexton he wouldn’t meet “her” because 15 was too young. Sexton responded by sending a computer emoticon symbol indicating anger.

Pischel, a former prison guard who lives in Lincoln, said investigators entrapped him.
