Lapeer– 38 year old Stosh Gizinski of Lapeer has been arrested and charged with multiple crimes including accosting a minor for immoral purposes.
Gizinski was caught in a Genesee County sting that was spearheaded by, famous journalist and television video producer, Chris Hansen.
Hansen is part of an organization and TV show called, Take Down. He was also part of the To Catch A Predator television series, which also focused on catching and arresting sexual predators who prey on minors.
Genesee County Sheriff’s office teamed up with Hansen to set up their sting in which Gizinski was caught in. The text message conversations between Gizinski and the decoy (law enforcement member posing as a 15 year old girl) prove Gizinski knew of the decoy’s age. It also proved Gizinski was going to meet, what he thought, a 15 year old girl for sex.
Gizinski attempted to deceive Hansen as to why he actually came to the location to meet the girl. At first Gizinski indicated he came there looking for his sister whom he said was missing from Jackson.
Gizinski was later asked by Hansen what he was going to do once he got there. Gizinski replied,
“I was gonna ask her if she needed a ride somewhere and then I was gonna go.”
It was later proved by Hansen and law enforcement that Gizinski’s story of searching for his missing sister was false. His multiple text messages prove he came there with the intentions to have sex with a 15 year old girl.
Gizinski is being charged with child abusive commercial activity, accosting a child for immoral purposes, and communicating with another via the Internet to commit a crime. Gizinski is being held in the Genesee County Jail.
