Balcerak lured the boys with promises of odd jobs and then "rough-housed" with them, allegedly touching their genitals, according to Detective Lt. Karl Schoepp, commanding officer of the 1st Squad.

Balcerak was arrested at a friend's home in Long Beach after a brief investigation, and was arraigned in First District Court on Monday. He was ordered held on $250,000 bond or $100,000 cash bail.

In December he was arrested and sentenced to 45 days in jail and three years' probation, after he failed to register his address with the Sex Offender Registry.
