ENID, Okla. —
A 26-year-old Enid man arrested last week after an undercover online investigation by Enid police is facing up to 10 years in prison.
Vlado Mark Onigish Sibinovski was arraigned Thursday on a felony count of transmitting information by computer for the purpose of instigating sexual conduct with a minor. The charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
Sibinovski appeared via video from Garfield County Detention Facility before Special District Judge Brian Lovell. He confirmed his information was correct and said he understood the charges against him.
Sibinovski was ordered to return to court Aug. 5 for a bond appearance and is being held in lieu of $50,000.
According to an affidavit filed in the case, Enid Police Department Sgt. Dustin Albright answered an online ad posted May 28 by Sibinovski seeking sex. The ad specified age “does not matter.”
Albright contacted Sibinovski as a 14-year-old girl and communicated with him, according to the affidavit. Sibinovski sent a sexually explicit image to Albright and made sexually explicit comments.
Albright was able to identify Sibinovski and contacted Sibinovski June 18, who agreed to be interviewed at Enid Police Department.
Sibinovski admitted he was the one communicating with Albright and said he knew what he did was wrong, according to the affidavit. Sibinovski said he never intended to meet the 14-year-old for sex and was just role playing.
