A landlord is accused of demanding sex in lieu of rent, police charge.
Richard A.Bruno, 44, of Waterford, Connecticut allegedly attempted to exhort sexual favors for rented properties he had leased to tenants, and also allegedly tried to solicit sex acts from children, according to Connecticut police.
It’s unclear if he owned the properties or managed them, or both, or how many properties and tenants are in question.
Police released a statement saying that they had arrested Bruno in New London on Thursday after he agreed to meet what he thought was a 13-year-old girl online and arranged to pay her for sexual acts. He was actually talking to a member of the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit.
He is charged with six counts of sexual criminal acts, including attempts at sexual trafficking and enticement of minor.
