A man in Georgia imprisoned a 13-year-old girl in his home for almost three months, subjecting her to “unimaginable” horrors and repeatedly sexually assaulting her, prosecutors said.
As per the Douglas County District Attorney, in 2020, the child ran away from home and was picked up by a stranger who exchanged her with convicted pedophile Dale Drzewucki in return for drugs.
Drzewucki, aged 46, held the girl captive for almost three months in his home in Douglas County, giving her alcohol and narcotics to maintain her intoxicated while repeatedly raping her.
According to disturbing evidence discovered on his phone, he also threatened the child every time she declined to have sex.
On Tuesday, the District Attorney announced that he pleaded guilty on June 5 to many 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 girl had run away from her mother’s home in Cobb County on Nov. 4, 2020, and was picked up by a stranger who offered her a ride as she walked near Six Flags Park.
The unnamed man brought her to his home and then reached out to Drzewucki — offering the child for sex in exchange for drugs, the prosecutor said.
Drzewucki picked up the girl and locked her in his house where he used her for sexual servitude.
In January 2021, the girl made an escape from the house and managed to contact her mother, leading to a reunion with her family. They promptly contacted the police.
“No community is immune from the tragedy that is human trafficking,” Douglas County District Attorney Dalia Racine said in a statement. 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.”
Superior Court Judge Cynthia Adams sentenced Drzewucki to 25 years to life.
