Accused Child Molester Arraigned

2/23/12 – A Hustisford man told a Dodge County judge yesterday during an arraignment hearing that he is “not guilty” of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl. Eric Bricco is charged with Second Degree Sexual Assault of a Child, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 80 years, if he is convicted. Authorities say the 19-year-old told the victims parents he was 16-years-old and home-schooled. The offenses are said to have occurred on two separate occasions last October. During the most recent incident, the two fell asleep in a car in rural Hustisford and were awoken by Dodge County Sheriffs Deputies who alerted the girl’s parents to her boyfriend’s actual age.
