A former Erie County Sheriff's Deputy who worked at the jail has pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution with his wife. Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announced that the 55-year-old Lancaster man pleaded guilty to the charge against him on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, before Lancaster Town Court Justice Anthony J. Cervi. Wallace Waliczek entered a guilty plea for the misdemeanor charge of Promoting Prostitution in the Fourth Degree.

His wife, 32-year-old Melissa A. Waliczek also of Lancaster, was arrested on August 16, 2019. She allegedly was advertising sex for money services online. An undercover officer from the Lancaster Police Department set up a session with her. When he arrived at the agreed-upon location in a parking lot on Transit Road, the officer saw Mr. Waliczek in another vehicle in the parking lot watching the meeting. He was off-duty at the time of the incident.

Mrs. Waliczek was charged with one count of misdemeanor Prostitution and is awaiting her trial in Human Trafficking Court. Mr. Waliczek could spend up to a year behind bars. He will be sentenced on Tuesday, April 5, 2022. Meanwhile, he was released on his own recognizance.

15 Teen Girls Have Gone Missing In New York In The Past Month [Photos]

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Across New York State, there are families and friends who are worried about their loved one, who has gone missing. In the past month, 15 teen girls have gone missing from all around the state. While some may be runaways, others could very easily have been forced into the sex trade.

Child sex trafficking occurs when a child under 18 is advertised, solicited or exploited through a commercial sex act. A commercial sex act is any sex act where something of value – such as money, drugs, or a place to stay – is given to or received by any person for sexual activity. While any child can be targeted, we know through research, data and survivor-lived experience that traffickers and buyers often target youth who lack strong support networks, have experienced violence in the past, are experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness or are marginalized by society.

If you have seen any of these young ladies, please call 911 first, then contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
