Bruns Update: Repeat Kiddie Porn Offender

Looks like this is not Bruns’ first offense.

Bruns leaves ‘U’ in criminal case

Less than two weeks after Department of Public Safety detectives had arrested him on charges of distributing child pornography, LSA first-year student Aaron Bruns voluntarily dropped out of the University while his case was pending, his lawyer told District Court Judge John Collins on Wednesday.

As a condition of his freedom – Bruns is out on a personal recognizance bond – Washtenaw County Assistant Prosecutor John Reiser asked that Bruns not use a computer for anything other than school work, said County Recorder Jackie Wallen.

Bruns’ attorney Douglas Mullkoff indicated that he would not be using a computer since he had left the University.

Bruns’ preliminary hearing was adjourned until May 12 at the request of his lawyer. Bruns was not present in court yesterday, having returned home to Lima, Ohio.

DPS detectives seized Bruns’ computer on March 15 from his South Quad room. Thousands of pornographic images were stored on his computer, many of them of children in explicit sexual situations, said DPS Lt. Wesley Skowron.

Bruns was arrested on March 18 by DPS Sgt. Kevin McNulty and released after arraignment.
