Ocala man sentenced for soliciting child over the internet

An Ocala resident who law enforcement officials charged with soliciting a juvenile for sex over the internet has been sentenced to prison.

Last week, Donald Dziadyk pleaded no contest to travel to meet a minor after use of computer to lure child, transmission of harmful material to minor, possession of cannabis less than 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was adjudicated guilty by Circuit Judge Lisa Herndon, according to court documents.

Dziadyk was sentenced to 26 months in prison. Records show that Dziadyk has 448 days of credit for time already served at the Marion County Jail. Once he’s released from prison, he must register as a sexual offender.

Dziadyk was arrested last year as part of “The Dirty Dozen,” a sting operation carried out by local and regional authorities.

A co-defendant, Jason Sciongay, 35, is presently serving four years behind bars followed by two years of probation and must register as a sexual predator; another, Jorge Cruz Ordonez, 35, was sentenced to two years in prison late last year; a third, Robert Salch, 23, was sentenced to three years of probation.
