A New Berlin burglary investigation leads to an arrest on a sexual assault charge
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A police investigation started with a burglary at a landscaping business in August, but has turned into a charge for possession of child porn and sexual assault.
New Berlin police officials suspected 27-year-old Michael McMullen of that burglary. When they searched his phone for evidence, authorities found photos of him abusing a boy that he was caring for inside of his Brookfield home.
McMullen now faces 17 felony charges for possession of child pornography and child sexual assault, and another felony count for burglary.
If convicted on all the counts in the complaint, he would face a maximum penalty of nearly 500 years in prison.
