A Georgia man pleaded guilty to multiple charges after he kept a 13-year-old in his home and sexually abused her for months.

On Nov. 4, 2020, officials reported that a girl ran away from her mother’s home in Cobb County, WSB-TV reported.

While she was walking, an unidentified man approached her and offered her a ride. Once they arrived at his home, the man allegedly contacted 46-year-old Dale Drzewucki and offered sex with the girl in exchange for drugs.

Drzewucki eventually picked up the victim and kept her at his Douglas County home for almost three months, according to authorities.

While the victim was at Drzewucki’s residence, he repeatedly sexually abused the child and kept her intoxicated by giving her drugs and alcohol, officials said.

Evidence on the defendant's phone showed that he made threats against the minor when she refused to have sex with him.
