A Bowie, Md., man convicted of sexually abusing a minor in June had his sentencing pushed back, according to Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks.

Michael Brochu, 53, had since sentencing delayed until Aug. 12. He was convicted in June of one count of second-degree sex offense, one count of sexual abuse of a minor and one count of unnatural and perverted practices for molesting a young boy on multiple occasions.

The victim gave specific details of these incidents during the trial. He said the abuses occurred in 2011 and 2012 at Brochu’s home and a Bowie community pool.

The victim’s mother said her son had played with Brochu’s grandson at his house many times. He someone the family trusted, according to her.

Brochu has two more cases scheduled for October and November involving similar charges with different victims.
