Krystian W., known as Krystek and the “teenager hunter”, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for contacting a minor under 15 for sexual purposes. The judgment is not final. A teenager committed suicide, and earlier told a friend that she had been raped. In another case, “Krystek” has 40 allegations of a sexual nature.
The court sentenced Krystian W. to two and a half years in prison for forbidden correspondence with two girls under the age of 15. One of them is forbidden from coming closer than 100 meters and from contacting it for three years. The second – Anaid – is dead.
On March 8, 2015, 14-year-old Anaid threw herself in front of a train at the Gdańsk-Orunia station. Earlier, as Gazeta Wyborcza described, she told her friend: “he raped me.” It was never possible to establish without any doubts who “he” was, but investigators found that just before taking his life, the 14-year-old had contact with Krystian W., called by the media a “teenager hunter”.
It is forbidden to make contact
– In the course of the proceedings, the content of conversations conducted by Krystian W. with the minor Anaid was obtained by means of international legal assistance. The conversation took place from February 5 to March 7, 2015. The analysis of its content, as well as other evidence in the case, gave rise to presenting Krystian W. with a charge of committing a prohibited crime to establish contact with a minor under 15 years of age – Grażyna Wawryniuk, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office told us.
The correspondence between the girl and the man – as the investigators reported – showed that Krystian W. was supposed to know perfectly well how old Anaid was, and the nature of the message indicated that he was misleading her as to the nature of the meeting he wanted to lead to. He promised her, among other things, a job of cleaning his apartment.
Krystian W. never confessed to the alleged offense. He was facing up to three years in prison.
The prosecution: a long list of crimes
Krystian W. was accused of 65 crimes, including 40 of a sexual nature. The 44-year-old man today was said to have committed, inter alia, rapes and intercourse with people under the age of 15. According to the investigators’ findings, 33 teenagers were injured. This case is still pending before the Gdańsk court.
The man was also accused of a whole range of other crimes, including persistent harassment and coercion to certain behaviors, and giving adolescents a psychoactive substance.
Among other things, he was supposed to record intercourse with his victims, and then blackmail them with the publication of recordings to force the girls to meet again.
Wawryniuk informed that the acts accused of Krystian W. took place from 2006 to 2015 in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, including the Tri-City, Puck, Wejherowo and Władysławowo.
In April 2018, Krystian W. heard one sentence for the rape of a 17-year-old girl. The court sentenced him to three years in prison. He also issued a ban on approaching the victim for four years. The man appealed, but in October the Gdańsk District Court upheld the sentence.
Krystian W. was also supposed to – according to the prosecutor’s office – extort credits, loans, compensation from insurance companies, as well as benefits from the Municipal Social Welfare Center. The trial in this case has been underway since January 2019.
