Brochu was convicted of "three counts of third degree sex offense, one count of child sex abuse, one count of second-degree sex offense, and one count of unnatural and perverted practices," according to the statement.
“This is a tremendous verdict for the Bowie community and the neighborhood where Mr. Brochu lived,” Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said in the statement. “This family and this community has received justice and can now begin to heal.”
This is Brochu's second conviction in connection with molesting Bowie-area boys. Brochu was indicted in 2012 after a young boy accused him of multiple accounts of abuse in Brochu’s home and at a community pool. During his June trial, the victim provided detailed accounts of the abuse, according to a statement. The victim’s mother also testified that she considered Brochu a “trusted adult” and that her son had played at Brochu’s home with his grandson on multiple occasions.
Brochu was sentenced to 41 years in connection with his June conviction. He faces sentencing for his current conviction on Nov. 1.
There is still on case pending against Brochu alleging similar crimes. That case is scheduled to be heard in November.
