After two different delays in his sentencing, David Michael Brochu is set learn his punishment for molesting a neighbor’s child Friday afternoon at the Prince George’s County Courthouse.
Brochu is facing a maximum sentence of 18 years in prison, according to the office of Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks. He was convicted of one count of second degree sex offense, one count of sexual abuse of a minor, and one count of unnatural and perverted practices.
Brochu was indicted in August 2012 when the victim came forward with accusations of abuse. The incidents took place in 2011 and 2012 at Brochu’s home and at a Bowie community pool, according to the State’s Attorney’s office.
During the trial, the victim’s mother said that Brochu had been considered a “trusted adult” and that her child had played with Brochu’s grandson at Brochu’s home several times, according to the State’s Attorney’s office.
Two cases involving other victims are scheduled to begin in October and November, respectively.
