A Toronto man has been sentenced for trying to lure a St. Marys girl into sexual activity.

27-year-old Daniel Wnek was sentenced to 11 years in prison followed by a decade worth of supervision. He admitted guilt to coercion and enticement, and transfer of obscene material to minors.

In November 2017, Wnek posed as a 14-year-old talking to who he thought was a 14-year-old girl on Instagram and Snapchat. He later revealed that he was 26 at the time and the female was actually 11-years-old. Wnek had sent several days worth of sexually explicit messages, photos, and videos to the female.

He was arrested later that month in Orlando, Florida.
