A man from Georgia sexually assaulted a teen girl for several months after she was sold to him by another man as a trade-off for drugs, prosecutors say, reports FOX.
46-year-old Dale Drzewucki pleaded guilty earlier in the month to a slew of charges including
“trafficking of persons for sexual servitude, rape, statutory rape, enticing a child for indecent purposes, child molestation, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor,”
the news outlet reports.
Dalia Racine, Douglas County District Attorney, said on Wednesday,
“No community is immune from the tragedy that is human trafficking. What this victim had to endure at the hands of this defendant is unimaginable….. We hope that this conviction will help her and her family in the healing process from these horrible acts. We applaud all that were a part of bringing him to justice.”
The 13-year-old girl was walking close to Six Flags Park after running away from her Cobb County home when an unidentified man offered her a ride and then drove her to his home in Douglas County. He later got in contact with Drzewucki and offered him sexual acts with the teen to trade for drugs. Drzewucki later picked up the victim and took her to his home as he held her for close to three months. He sexually abused her and drugged her, according to prosecutors.
Back in January 2021, the unnamed teen was able to escape the man’s home and get in contact with her mother. Thankfully, she later reunited with her family.
Drzewucki was recently sentenced to 25 years behind bars.
