Jury Convicts Baran On Molestation Charges

12/13/17 – It took a jury in Dodge County a half hour on Tuesday to find a Hartford man guilty of having inappropriate contact with a minor. Steven Baran was convicted of felony Repeated Sexual Assault of the Same Child.  The 52-year-old went into the Hartford Police Department last year to turn himself in for assaulting a girl whose parents he was living with in Hustisford at the time.  Baran said it happened five or six times over the course of three months and asked to be arrested since he was getting urges to rape again.  The victim, who was ten years old when the assaults began, said the incidents happened between 2005 and 2007. Baran will be sentenced in March.
