On September 29, 2016, Lavadog was arraigned in Muskegon County District Court for first degree criminal sexual conduct involving a boy under age thirteen.
Police began investigating Lavadog after receiving a tip from Child Protective Services. Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat alleged that Lavadog anally penetrated the boy, a relative, multiple times between October and November 2015. Lavadog was also charged with lying to a peace officer during a violent crime investigation, having allegedly lied to a Michigan State Police trooper investigating the CSC charges.
Lavadog's bond was set at $75,000 and he was due back in court on October 13. After this time, the trial was pushed back to March 7, 2017, a day in court which adjourned in order to allow Lavadog to receive a psychiatric evaluation. Lavadog was found guilty of first-degree criminal sexual conduct on Aug. 22 following a jury trial in Muskegon County Circuit Court. On October 2, 2018, he was sentenced to 25 to 40 years in prison.
