Daniel Toce’s Two Failed Marriage
Toce was first married to Christine Maolta. The couple gave birth to two children. However, there are no records of the couple’s marriage, including how long it was sustained.
But, Dave, one of Daniel’s high school friends told Lipstick Alley that his old buddy left his first spouse and two kids in order to marry “gold digger” Kim.
After going through two failed relationships, Toce went on to marry his third wife Mary Toce. The two remained married for 8 years before their divorce.
The two didn’t share any biological children but Mary has a daughter from her previous relationship, with whom Daniel was involved in an illegal sexual relationship at the age of 15.
Arrested for rape case of his 15-year-old step-daughter
While Mary and her daughter were living with Daniel, his inappropriate behavior with the girl who was under-16 at the time was really shocking.
Connecticut police began the research on the case after one of Daniel’s family members complained to the police in 2010. A source close to him said they believed that Daniel was involved in an illegal physical relationship with another family member. The family member disclosed on docs,
“Daniel Toce and the victim were getting very close and seemed to be obsessed with each other.”
Victim’s Statements and Daniel Toce’s 10-year punishment in Prison
Soon after the revelation, the police questioned the victim who opened up about how their physical relationship started. She said when “Daniel had been drinking and asked her if he could kiss her. Then they kissed.” She added, “while on the path, she and Daniel had consensual vaginal intercourse for the first time. They did not use birth control and Daniel ejaculated inside of her.”
From that moment, the two continued to have sex on a routine basis. She revealed they had sex on “two to three occasions” in motels, on “about 52 occasions” in an apartment, and on “about 35 to 36 occasions” at home.
Besides, the victim also became pregnant with his baby in early 2010. She had an abortion after a few weeks of pregnancy. The papers obtained by Radar say,
“The victim said Daniel Toce was the only person she was having sex with at the time and he was the father of the baby. The victim said she wanted to keep the baby but she had no way to support it and it would have resulted in Daniel getting arrested.”
Additionally, the then minor said that Daniel used to take cocaine and physically abuse her. Toce was finally arrested and was charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of risk of injury to under 16-year-old victim in 2010.
He was found guilty of sexually assaulting and having illicit sexual contact with a minor in the following year. He was given ten years sentence at the MacDougall-Walker Correctional Institution in Connecticut, a maximum-security prison.
But, Daniel was released after two and a half-year of serving in Feb 2013.
