Warrrens resident faces three felony counts after luring Grafton teen to hotel
A 21-year-old Warrens man was charged last week with three felony counts for seducing a 13-year-old Town of Grafton girl over the Internet, then luring her to a hotel and having sex with her.
Jason Dzwonkowski was charged with child enticement, sexual assault of a child younger than 16 and use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime.
If convicted of all three felonies, he faces a maximum penalty of 65 years in prison, 40 years extended supervision and $300,000 in fines.
According to the complaint, the incident came to light when the girl’s parents reported her missing about 10 p.m. July 3. When examining the teenager’s Kindle, an Ozaukee County sheriff’s deputy discovered a number of messages between the girl and a man named Vladimir Bessanov — a name Dzwonkowski later said he used when contacting the teen.
In the messages, Dzwonkowski told the girl he was in Grafton and had gotten a hotel room where they could have sex, the complaint states. The girl later sent him a message that she was sneaking out her window at 9:44 p.m. that night.
Deputies and Grafton police officers checked area hotels but were unable to find the girl or Dzwonkowski.
After the girl returned home, she told deputies that Dzwonkowski had sent her a friend request on Facebook. He knew she was 13, she said, and she believed he was in his 20s. Dzwonkowski later told authorities he was 17.
According to their Facebook postings, Dzwonkowski gave the teenager a cell phone. When deputies examined the phone’s text messages, they discovered conversations that included Dzwonkowski’s request she dress in “something sexi and maybe a lil slutty only for me to see, then maybe like some sweats over it” and graphic descriptions of sexual activity that was to occur, the complaint states.
The conversations also included discussions of the fact she was nervous about losing her virginity and his assurances he would use condoms so the girl would not get pregnant, the complaint states.
Dzwonkowski also told the girl he would try to get her tipsy beforehand, according to the complaint.
When they were at the hotel, the girl said, Dzwonkowski went to his computer and may have been trying to make a video recording of them, according to the complaint.
The pair cut their night short when the girl checked her cell phone messages and discovered police were looking for her, the complaint states.
Judge Sandy Williams set bail for Dzwonkowski at $50,000, with the conditions that he not to use a computer, access the Internet or text anyone. She also ordered him not to have contact with anyone younger than 18 years.
