On October 28, 2019, Bemowski was charged with Contact with A Minor For A Sexual Offense and Unlawful Sexual Intercourse.[6]

On March 2, 2021, Bemowski pleaded no contest to a felony count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, for committing a sex crime against a 16-year-old girl.[5] A felony count of contact with a minor for sex was dropped as part of the plea bargain.[7].
