Bawek, who is married to Houska's best friend Brittnee, was 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.
According to Eau Claire County Court, Bawek had a court hearting on April 30, where he plead not guilty to the charges against him.
His next court hearing is set for July 11, 2018. A clerk of court for Eau Claire County told Radar that the status conference would be to discuss if the case will go to a jury trial.
In the complaint obtained by Radar, a detective from the Atloona Police Department responded to a Craigslist ad, which was posted by Bawek. The ad read, "Business stud seeking female or select couple… I am staying in town for the night for work. 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."
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 responded, "As long as you're not the police. Talking is fine." When the officer sent Bawek a photo of an underage girl, he responded, "Nice, You're cute." He then sent her 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?" The 28-year-old then told her, "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 and claimed she said she was 16 or 17 years old. When the detective asked if she was 14, he admitted she was.
He faces between 20 to 40 years in prison for each count. The couple got married in July 2016. In October, they announced they're expecting their first child. Both have deactivated their social media accounts.
