A 57-year-old Stanton man, who was caught with his pants down and alone with a 14-year-old boy in a truck cab, was convicted last week of molestation.
Mark Aime Brosseau had met the boy through Craigslist before the sexual assault in
the parking structure of the Bella Terra mall in Huntington Beach.
Brosseau was found guilty by a jury of one felony count each of lewd acts upon a child, contacting a child with the intent to commit lewd acts, and meeting a child with the intent to engage in lewd conduct.
He could get five years and four months in state prison and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration at his sentencing Jan. 24 in Fullerton.
A Huntington Beach cop had rolled up on the pickup the night of Sept. 25, 2010, to find Brosseau and the boy inside. The adult was arrested at the scene. Further investigation revealed he had met the 14-year-old online in June 2010 and had molested the teen several times before the arrest.
Brosseau denied in his trial testimony that his pants were down and claimed he was just a friend of the boy's, reports City News Service.
