Judge delays Douglas Aube sentencing

HUNTSVILLE — A former Decatur man's move to South Carolina led to a delay in his sentencing, according to news reports.

Douglas Aube, 35, was convicted Wednesday in Madison County Circuit Court of enticing a child for immoral purposes, but the judge delayed sentencing pending an investigation into the requirements for probation in South Carolina.

Prosecutors said Aube approached a 15-year-old girl in March 2006 at Victoria's Secret in Madison Square Mall in Huntsville and asked her to model a bra for him.

Aube, then an employee of State Farm Insurance Co. in Decatur, has since moved to Little River, S.C., and gone into the restaurant business, The Huntsville Times reported Thursday.

Aube could be sentenced to up to five years in prison, but prosecutors and the victim's family agreed probation would be sufficient punishment in lieu of prison, The Times reported.
