A 37-year-old Onamia man accused of sexually abusing two girls younger than age 13 now faces 10 serious felony counts, instead of six.
Bradley Allen Weyaus, 37, was initially charged Feb. 2 in Crow Wing County District Court for allegedly sexually assaulting two juvenile females who are known to him. The conduct occurred either in 2012 or 2013, the complaint stated.
The original six criminal sexual conduct serious felonies Weyaus faces include: first-degree with penetration of a victim younger than 16 years old-multiple acts, first-degree penetration of a victim younger than 16 years old-significant relationship, first-degree penetration or contact with a person younger than 13 years in age when the actor is more than 36 months older, second-degree significant relationship with a person younger than 16 years, second-degree multiple acts with a person younger than 16 years and second-degree with a victim younger than 13 years when the actor is more than 36 months older.
The additional, four more criminal sexual conduct serious felony counts added May 31, include first-degree with penetration of a victim younger than 16 years where there is a significant relationship, first-degree with penetration or contact with a victim younger than age 13, second-degree significant relationship with a victim younger than 16 and second-degree conduct with a victim younger than 13.
According to the Crow Wing County Attorney's Office prosecuting the case, the amended criminal complaint more accurately reflects the charges filed against Weyaus.
According to a criminal complaint against Weyaus, the abuse was first reported in October of 2015 to officials with Crow Wing County Community Services. The girls were each interviewed separately following the initial report.
A 13-year-old, referred to as Child A in the complaint, described an incident when she was 9 years old. She said while sleeping, Weyaus sexually assaulted her. Weyaus stopped when she told him she had to use the bathroom, Child A said, and she stayed there until he left the room.
Child A described several other incidents that occurred in another location. She said Weyaus picked her up while she was sleeping, after which he would remove her clothing and his clothing, stand at the edge of a bed and penetrate her. This conduct continued to occur through March 2013.
A 12-year-old, referred to as Child B in the complaint, stated Weyaus sexually assaulted her when she was 10 in Mille Lacs County. Child B was unable to provide any details on what Weyaus did to her.
In December of 2015, an investigator with Mille Lacs Tribal police obtained a recorded statement from Weyaus. During the statement, Weyaus allegedly admitted to sexually assaulting Child A, but denied any sort of penetration. Weyaus said the child was 11 at the time of the incident.
In the recorded statement, Weyaus admitted to police his sexual attraction to Child A, but he denied any sexual contact with Child B.
Weyaus currently is in Crow Wing County Jail. In March, Weyaus requested a court-appointed attorney and Public Defender Gregory Brooks Davis is representing him. Unconditional bail was then was set for $100,000 or $40,000 with conditions.
The next court hearing for Weyaus has not yet been scheduled.
