Brian Broulik, 41, was convicted in 2013 of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim 13 to 15 years old. He is also a registered predatory offender for life and has a lengthy history of predatory crimes.

He was arrested in 2012 in Dodge County Court for felony second-degree criminal sexual conduct for fondling a 4-year-old boy. He also was charged in Olmsted County in 2012 for violating a restraining order for being in contact with a teenage girl and possessing a pornographic work that contains minors.

According to court complaints, Broulik arranged to meet with an Austin teen in March 2013 while the teen’s parents were gone. In May 2013, an FBI agent also served Broulik with a federal search warrant and found child pornography on Broulik’s phone, including video of him allegedly fondling the 4-year-old child, according to the Dodge County Court complaint.

Broulik is already listed as a Level 3 sex offender, as he was convicted in 1997 of second-degree criminal sexual conduct in Steele County and again for the same charge in Rice County in 1998. He also violated his terms of offender registration in Freeborn County in 2007.
