A Port Leyden man is facing charges after he allegedly provided alcohol to minors and then had sexual contact with a minor, according to New York State Police and Chief Deputy Michael Purdy of the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center.

Michael Daskiewich, 57, is charged with felony third-degree criminal sexual act and two counts of misdemeanor first-degree unlawful dealing with a child.

Police say Daskiewich is accused of providing alcohol to two minors and then engaging in sexual contact with a minor less than 17 years old. Daskiewich was taken into custody after he agreed to meet up with a minor, possibly to engage in further sexual contact after the first incident, according to police.

The alleged incident occurred between Oct. 20 and Oct. 21 in the town of Leyden.

Daskiewich was arraigned in the Town of Denmark Court and sent to the Lewis County Jail on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
Police say an order of protection was requested by the victim and the District Attorney’s Office, but the court declined to issue one.

The victim was offered services through the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center.
