Jury Trail Set For Suspected Hartford Child Molester

8/9/17 – A Hartford man accused of having inappropriate contact with a minor had December 11 jury trial added to the court calendar in Dodge County7 yesterday. Steven Baran is facing five felony counts of First Degree Sexual Assault of a Child.  The 52-year-old allegedly went into the Hartford Police Department last summer to turn himself in for sexually 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 reportedly asked to be arrested since he was getting urges to rape again.  The victim, who says she was ten years old when the assaults began, claims the incidents happened between 2005 and 2007.  If he is convicted on all counts, Baran faces up to 300 years in prison.
