Husband of Chelsea DeBoer’s bff Brittnee arrested for soliciting sex from a 14-yr-old girl

Chelsea DeBoer Brittnee Alex Bawek arrest

The husband of Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska’s best friend Brittnee Bawek was arrested in South Dakota last week after trying to arrange a sexual encounter with a police officer posing online as a 14-year-old girl.

28-year-old Alex Bawek was arrested Thursday in Altoona, South Dakota and charged with felony counts of use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, child enticement, and attempted sexual assault of a child younger than 16.

According to the police report, Alex placed an ad on Craigslist seeking a woman or couple looking to have some fun. An undercover police officer responded to the ad, posing as a 14-year-old girl.

Alex, who listed himself as being 28 years old in the ad, messaged back and forth with the officer before the conversation got sexual and he asked for sexy photos.

In response, the police officer sent Alex a bikini photo of an underage girl. After receiving the photo, Alex arranged a pick up at an apartment complex, but instead of the teen girl, police officers were waiting for him there.

Initially Alex told police that he was meeting an underage girl that was 16 or 17, but he later admitted that he knew she was 14 and that he wanted to have sex with her. Police found a box of condoms in Alex’s car.

Given the three charges against him, Alex is facing up to 65 years in prison if found guilty of all three felonies. He was reportedly released without bond and his next scheduled court appearance is January 23.

    Sort of a stretch Starcasm. Who cares what the husband of a friend of a “Teen Mom” does.

    • TA

      I do. I care that grown men are still trying to sneak around having sex with children. You should, too.
      Brittee is on the show often enough that I don’t see this as much of a stretch.

      • Mike Lit

        God, settle down!

          …why don’t you. TA answered a question that was posed. You? Just showed up to be rude. Get over yourself, pedophilia NEEDS to be outed and punished. You wouldn’t not expose a Joe Schmo pedo BECAUSE HE WASNT FAMOUS ENOUGH. Smgdh.

        • TA

          That was me being calm…
          But I won’t apologize for speaking out about this. I was a victim of childhood molestation and I support catching these creeps by whatever means necessary, including articles being posted on gossip sites about someone that “isn’t famous”.

    • Bebe

      That was my reaction at first, but after reading what he did…wow.

    That’s really sad and scary, considering she’s expecting a child herself. I wish her the best.

    Woah that photo of the 4 of them looks all sorts of crazy. Is the couple other than Chelsea and Cole photoshopped in individually or are they just really really sharp and flat? 😯🤔

    That sucks so much for Chelseas friend, newlywed husband arrested for that and pregnant. Her world is upside down and everyone knows so she can’t hide it until she is ready to publically deal either. Dang, that really sucks.

    Heart breaking to say the least. At least it was discovered now and not after the child was born. Makes you wonder if he was capable of doing things to his own child, that he could do it to another. Smfh

    I feel heartbroken for Britnee. This happened to a friend of mine about 10 years ago. And my friend was shunned by so many of their friends even though she had NOTHING to do with any of the situation, she had no idea. I hope Brittnee has a very supportive family and group of friends, especially since she’s pregnant.
    This guy is very sick. Gross. What is WRONG with people?!? As if a girl being 16 or 17 would have been any better? Makes me sick to my stomach knowing how many creeps are out there. 🤢

    I am so thankful for cops that can get up and do this day in and day out. Think of how many nasty predators would be still hurting kids without them. They are angels really.

    This is really disturbing though. I hope Aubree was never alone with this scum.

    I thought the headline said Cole at first, I was like holy sh*. Even still, I feel bad for her friend. If she chooses to stay with him (some people do falling for that “treatment” crap) I guess her friendship with Chelsea is over.

    First of all, this site is called STARcasm. These people aren’t even remotely famous but at least this is mildly interesting

    He’s a COMPLETE LOSER and perv to do that to his pregnant wife. She should leave him. There is something to be said about cops who sort of entrap or ensnare men who aren’t actually *looking for* underage girls. He’s like a LOT of complete loser, cheater men. They’ll take whoever they think they can get, even if they know she is underage. It doesn’t actually mean he’s a true pedophile who is seeking out underage girls.
    I personally would prefer cops focus on child predators who truly groom and otherwise target children. He still needs to be punished for it just like everyone else. There’s no excuse for that behavior.

    • TA

      I have to disagree and here’s why…
      It’s a known fact that men (and some women) will post ads with specific wording or phrases posing in search of adults, but actually are interested in children. So perhaps this guy did, and cops picked up on it and went after him.
      Had he not been a pedophile, he’d have immediately cut off contact with this supposed 14 year old girl rather than continuing to communicate and asking for photos. He’d have been repulsed by even the thought. An adult shouldn’t be interested in anything sexual with a minor. Period. And if they are, they’re sick and need help and need to be removed from general society.
      Go ahead and think poorly of these police departments that have entire units set up to catch predators. But it’s extremely important. I can’t even begin to explain to you how difficult it is to live your life being a victim of molestation as a child.
      I’m sure police departments DO follow up on leads if possible grooming, but it’s pretty hard to catch someone of wrongdoing before they’ve done anything “wrong”.

    Adults preying on underaged kids, be it men->girls or women->boys, is gross. But so are adults, police or otherwise, who go online pretending to be underaged kids. Both sides are disgusting as far as I’m concerned.
