Chelsea Houska's good friend Alex Bawek, who has appeared on Teen Mom 2 in the past, has been sentenced in the child sexual assault case against him. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the disgraced reality star has been sentenced to six months in jail, plus other conditions.
Houska's friend was arrested and charged with use of a computer to facilitate child sex crime, child enticement and attempted sexual assault of a child under 16 years of age in December 2017.
According to Eau Claire County Court, Alex was found guilty due to no contest plea for child enticement, while the other two charges against him were dismissed.
He was sentenced to six months in jail with five months stayed, which means the sentence is frozen "pending further order of the court," likely on the condition that he fulfills the conditions of probation. The remaining 30 days can be served by 240 hours of community service, if he chooses. Bawek will likely serve no jail time if he complies with the conditions.
He has also been placed on five years of probation. He is to have no unsupervised contact with minors under the age of 18, except his own child. He is also unable to have Internet access without the approval of the agent.
Alex must also complete a sex offender assessment and follow up with treatment recommended. He is to comply with the Sex Offender Registry and provide a DNA sample. He is to also pay $518 in fines.
In the complaint obtained by Radar, a detective from the Atloona Police Department responded to a Craigslist ad posted by Bawek. "Business stud seeking female or select couple… I am staying in town for the night for work," the ad read. "Have a nice hotel room and would like to have a little warm fun while it's cold out? No endless emails or games. Again seeking female or couple that likes to have discreet hot fun. Be clean and normal."
Alex was arrested for the crime while his wife Brittnee was pregnant with their first child, who likely gave birth around April 2018. A source told Radar she planned to "stick with him" at the time of his arrest. Both parties have deleted their social media accounts since the scandal broke.
The detective responded to the ad and posed as a 14-year-old girl named "Arianna." The officer wrote to Bawek, "Hey. I like your ad. How r u… I'm 14. Is it ok to talk?" Bawek replied, "As long as you're not the police. Talking is fine." The officer sent Bawek a photo of an underage girl. He responded to the picture, "Nice, you're cute." He also sent a photo of himself.
"Being you're 14 just makes me nervous," he wrote to her. "Don't want to get set up by police. When you finished with class. Want to come to hotel after? Well if you want to play with my c**k you're more than welcome to… You haven't ever had sex?" He then asked her for "sexy pics" so he could see her "goods." The officer sent a photo of an underage girl in a bikini. "I'd love to have you wrap your lips around my big c**," he told her. When he went to pick her up, police made contact with him. He admitted he was there to meet an underage girl.
