A Bowie man was found guilty Wednesday of sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy at a public pool, the last of three child sex abuse trials for the man accused of molesting a family member and neighbor children.
A Prince George’s County jury convicted Michael David Brochu, 54, on three counts of third-degree sex offenses for molesting the 11-year-old boy at the Whitehall Pool and Tennis Club, reports The Washington Post.
Brochu was originally arrested in 2012 by Prince George’s County Police for sexually abusing four juveniles, Patch earlier reported.
The victims include an 11-year-old boy who was assaulted by Brochu at a Bowie pool; an 8-year-old boy; a 10-year-old boy; and a 6-year-old family member, according to police.
Last year, Brochu was convicted in two separate child sex abuse cases involving his neighbor’s children, who also called him their godfather, the Post reports. The children were in Brochu’s home and car in 2011 and 2012.
The newspaper says Brochu faced 30 charges of child abuse and other related sex offenses in three trials. He was also convicted of child sex abuse in Howard County in the early 1980s.
