    Michael Wwysolovski targeted Hailey Burns in 2016 through an eating disorder website when she was 16 years old.

    The FBI rescued her a year later from Wwysolovski's home in Georgia.

    Wysolovski agreed to a deal and avoided prison time but had to register as a sex offender.

    He was arrested Tuesday night in Gwinnett County and is being held without bond.


    If convicted of violating his probation, he could go to prison.
