A Danbury man has been charged with multiple child exploitation offenses. 35-year old Wayne Marcell has been detained since his arrest on state charges in June. A 14-year old who met a Texas man on an online video chat platform moved in with him, and four weeks later allegedly began communicating with Marcell. He allegedly paid an individual $2,000 to drive the teen from Texas to Illinois as he drove from Connecticut to pick up the girl. He allegedly brought her to his Danbury home, engaged in multiple illicit sexual acts, and took photos and videos of the sexual abuse. The Texas man has been charged in that state. Marcell faces a mandatory minimum prison term of 5 years and a maximum of 30 years on the various charges.
