Prosecutor: Accused officer shouldn't work at mall

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A prosecutor says a former Minneapolis police officer accused of sexually assaulting young girls shouldn't be working at a shopping mall.

Assistant Anoka County Attorney Paul Young has asked a judge to find Bradley Schnickel in violation of his release. Schnickel works as a security guard for the mall and an apartment building. One of the conditions of his release prohibits him from contact with juvenile females.

Schnickel tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press his conduct has not been in conflict with the court's conditions.

The 32-year-old Andover father is accused of soliciting sex online from nearly two dozen young girls in Anoka and Hennepin counties. Prosecutors say in a few cases, he had sexual contact with the girls.
