Man Kept Girl As Sex Slave In Dog Cage, Judge Gives Him No Jail Time

In a horrifying case, 15-year-old Hailey Burns became the victim of sexual abuse and captivity at the hands 31-year-old Michael Wysolovski. The two met online, and Wysolovski manipulated Burns into running away from home, exploiting her struggles with anorexia and low self-esteem. Their relationship quickly turned into rape and abuse, with Wysolovski keeping Burns as his personal sex slave in his Atlanta home. She was starved, confined to a dog crate, and subjected to physical and psychological torment.

After over a year of captivity, Burns was rescued by the police the age of 17. She was severely malnourished, infected with ringworm, and suffered from back problems due to her time spent in the cage. However, despite facing serious charges that could have led to 25 years in prison, Wysolovski received a shockingly lenient sentence. Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge Timothy Hamil decided not to give him any jail time, citing credit for time served. Instead, Wysolovski was sentenced to only 8 months in prison, which he had already served before receiving bond. He will be on probation for 9 years and 4 months and must register as a sex offender.

This decision by Judge Hamil is deeply disturbing, especially considering Wysolovski's previous charges of rape, aggravated sodomy, cruelty to children, false imprisonment, and interstate interference with custody. Despite admitting that Wysolovski should not be granted first offender status, the judge allowed him to walk free without setting foot in a prison cell.

During the trial, Burns bravely testified against Wysolovski, describing the horrific abuse she endured. She revealed the manipulation and emotional torment she experienced, leading to a further deterioration of her mental health. Burns now suffers from additional diagnoses and has attempted suicide multiple times since her escape.

The Burns family initially feared that the trial would worsen their daughter's mental health, but they were devastated when Wysolovski was released. They are concerned for Hailey's safety and worry that he may harm her again or target other girls. The family expressed their determination to protect their daughter and prevent him from victimizing others.

This case highlights the urgent need for justice reform and better protection for victims of sexual abuse. The lenient sentence given to Wysolovski has left the community fearful and concerned about the safety of their children. It is crucial that awareness is raised about his release so that necessary precautions can be taken to safeguard potential victims from his predatory behavior.
