Toronto man tries to lure Auglaize County girl, sentenced to 11 years in prison

AUGLAIZE COUNTY — Daniel Jason Wnek, from Toronto, Ontario received an 11-year prison sentence for sending messages over social media attempting to coerce an 11-year-old girl from Auglaize County to engage in sexual activity.

Wnek contacted the unnamed victim via Instagram in 2017, using the photograph of a younger male and falsely told her he was 14 years old.

“The case demonstrates how predators will target our children over social media by posing as people different from who they truly area,” said U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman.
