A former security guard at Grandview High School was sentenced March 21 to a year in jail for sexually assaulting and exploiting a Grandview student.
In January, Broderick Lundie, 30, pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a child and sex assault. Judge Jeffrey Holmes sentenced Lundie to 12 months in jail followed by eight years of Sex Offender Intensive Supervision Probation. As part of his sentence, he must register as a sex offender.
“Whether a teacher, a guidance counselor or a janitor – we expect and trust those who work in our schools and have special access to our children to protect them when we send them to class, not prey upon them,” said District Attorney George Brauchler. “This guy took advantage of a girl not yet old enough to understand the implications of her actions. Instead of keeping her secure, he victimized her for his self-gratification.”
Lundie was arrested in May 2017 after Aurora police detectives learned he was having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old student that included sexting and oral sex in his car. Police found 16,000 deleted text messages on the victim’s phone as well as photos of the victim’s exposed breast and Lundie’s exposed penis.
“This defendant occupied a position of trust in the school district that employed him,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher Gallo told the court during sentencing. “The facts of this case indicate a betrayal of that trust. He deserves to spend time in jail.”
