Back in March, we told you about the arrest of Sky Wodraska.
The Breckenridge man was busted for attempted murder, assault, kidnapping and child abuse, with one of the victims being a fourteen-year-old girl who reportedly greeted the officer who rescued her after she'd been stabbed with these words: "Don't let me die."
Fortunately, she didn't — and Wodraska has now pleaded guilty in the case, which remains shocking in part because he'd previously abused and harassed the same girl he nearly killed.
We've got the details about Wodraska's prior run-ins with the law in not one but two arrest affidavits, the details of which may disturb some readers.
The first police report sketches out an incident that took place in May 2013. According to the document, a woman had stopped by Brooklyn's Tavern in Breckenridge, and she and a friend subsequently agreed to go back to Wodraska's place with him and another man.
Once there, she told police that she consumed a shot in which she noticed something floating. Afterward, she felt "weird," and while she couldn't remember much of what happened after that, she recalled waking up to discover herself in a completely different house as the unnamed second man was having sex with her friend.
The friend was so distressed by the experience that she began punching the man in the face.
This incident prompted a search of Wodraska's house, during which officers discovered a cube soaked in LSD, implying that the women had been dosed without their knowledge.
Wodraska subsequently pleaded guilty to possessing the LSD.
Cut to February 2014 and the next crime that put Wodraska on the radar of local law enforcement.
The second affidavit notes that the teen had contacted the Summit County Sheriff's Office because Wodraska, her mother's boyfriend, "tore up the house" and she was afraid to be alone with him.
During later conversations, the teen said Wodraska had been violent toward her mom and had contacted her inappropriately while they'd watched the movie Alien v. Predator, putting his hand up her shirt and touching her left breast.
Be warned: The affidavit spends a sizable chunk of its eleven pages obsessively detailing the breast-touching.
But the more salient portion of the document concerns Wodraska's reaction after being told about the accusation by police. Here's one of his texts to the girl:
I'VE GOT VIDEO PROOF OF YOUR MOTHER BEING AN UNFIT MOTHER. ENOUGH PROOF THAT U2 WILL BE SEPARATED FOR GOOD IF YOU DON'T TELLYOUR MOTHER THE TRUTH AND QUIT LYING AND SAYING THAT I MOLESTED YOU WHICH IN NO WAY HAVE I EVER FUCKING DONE. I WILL SHOW THIS VIDEO OF YOUR MOTHER BEING UNIT AND YOU TOO WILL BE SEPARATED FOR GOOD. ONE LIE OUT OF YOUR SCRAGGLE TOOTH TOO FACED MOUTH AND U2 WILL NEVER LIVE TOGETHER AGAIN.
A followup text strikes a similar tone:
TRY ME YOUR FORK TONGUE LOSER I'LL SHOW YOU THE VIDEO FIRST AND YOU CAN DECIDE WHETHER YOU WANT TO FUCKING LIE ABOUT ME OR FUCKING TELL THE TRUTH YOUR MOVE LOSER.
The final text quoted in the report reads like so: "Please tell the truth before I spend the rest of my life in jail because of these LIES!!!!!!!"
In the end, no life sentence was assessed because of Wodraska's 2014 behavior. As noted by the Summit Daily, he was initially smacked with a total of twelve charges — among them child abuse, stalking, extortion, violation of bond and telephone harassment.
After Wodraska pleaded guilty to child abuse, the other allegations were dropped, and he received a deferred judgment. However, a protection order was put in place forbidding him to contact the teen or her family.
As such, Wodraska was free on March 7 of this year, when his latest crime took place.
A more recent affidavit cited by the Summit Daily says that on the morning of the 7th, officers arrived at the Breckenridge condominium complex where the teen lived. They found her outside and suffering from stab wounds to her hand, back and neck.
Another fourteen-year-old girl involved in the incident was also outside — she was wandering around, barefoot. Inside the apartment, the teen's ten-year-old sister was bound, gagged and bruised.
What happened? The first teen revealed that Wodraska had broken into the condo during a time when her mother was at work and attacked the three girls.
It didn't take long for the cops to find Wodraska. Later on March 7, officers located him inside a black Cadillac Escalade parked not far from the condo "with self-inflicted wounds to his wrists and forearms," the Daily reports.
Inside his pockets, Wodraska had a screwdriver, gloves and a flashlight.
This week, Wodraska pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree attempted kidnapping and third-degree assault , and while he won't receive the life-sentence he'd mentioned earlier at his July 8 sentencing, the punishment will be close. He's expected to get 28 years for the attempted-murder beef, with the other crimes adding another decade apiece. A prosecutor predicts that he'll be eligible for parole by the time he reaches his early seventies.
"I deserve to go to prison for what I did," Wodraska said at the hearing — and it's hard to imagine anyone disagreeing with that sentiment.
