During their time together, on the 17th of October, 2001, the two welcomed a daughter named Ariana. But less than two years after they started a family, Toce and Zolciak called it quits, signing divorce papers on the 11th of February, 2003.

3. He Was Convicted of Sexually Assaulting a Minor
In 2010, a sexual assault case was launched against Daniel Toce when one of his family members reportedly told the police about his sexual contact with another unidentified family member who was a minor.
The police were said to have questioned the said victim but nothing was done as the person in question denied such an incident ever took place. Weeks later, however, the victim returned to the police and withdrew her initial statement, admitting that she lied because she feared for her life. She then to revealed that she and Toce had consented sexual relations for a while and that she had even conceived for him but had to have an abortion since it was illegal and would have led to the arrest of Toce. The victim later revealed that he used drugs like cocaine and he physically abused her.
Following the statement, an arrest warrant was issued and Daniel Toce was arrested. He first pleaded not guilty to the charge of illegal sexual interactions with a minor and sexual assault in the second degree but later changed his plea to guilty. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
4. The Courts Ordered Him to Register as a Sex Offender
Following his conviction, Daniel Toce was required by the court to register as a sex offender. He was further ordered to stay away from the victim and not engage with her while also registering for counseling on substance abuse, anger management, mental health, and sexual offenses.
5. He Served Only Two Years Of A Ten-Year Sentence
After having served only two years of his 10-year-long sentence for illegal sexual interactions with a minor and sexual assault in the second degree, Daniel Toce was released from prison and put on probation.
It is unclear why he was released early but as has been the case with the US criminal justice system, good behavior and other actions that show remorse and correction in the actions that led to the conviction could result in one being released from prison early.
