A 27-year-old man remained in jail Saturday night after he allegedly performed sex acts on himself several times in front of a Web cam when he thought a 14-year-old girl was watching, according to a recently released search warrant.
In reality, it was an undercover Citrus County Sheriff’s Office detective who viewed Jeffrey D. Wasik performing the acts from his Palmetto residence, according to the warrant.
The detective worked with local investigators at Manatee County Sheriff’s Office as part of the Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force in building a case against Wasik.
Wasik contacted the detective 16 times using Yahoo Messenger beginning in September.
Approximately 10 out of the 16 online chat sessions were steered in a sexual nature by Wasik, according to the warrant.
