A former Brookfield martial arts instructor who was convicted in 2009 of two counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child was released Aug. 13, according to the city of Waukesha Police Department. 

Arleigh C. Smith, 34, was sentenced to 11 years in prison for molesting two boys, ages 12 and 13, one of whom was a martial arts student. He will be living at 1100 E. Main St., Waukesha, according to the department.

Smith was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court after a boy's mother discovered a sexually explicit instant message on the family's computer and called police, according to a criminal complaint.

The Brookfield boy told police that he had sexual contact with Smith, including at the martial arts school where he was a student.

Smith's Milwaukee home was searched, and police seized a computer, court records said. Three videos found on Smith's hard drive showed him assaulting another boy.

He is not permitted to have employment or volunteer involvement with minors. Smith is to have no unsupervised contact with minors; is not allowed in taverns, bars or liquor stores; is prohibited from contact with the victims; and may not purchase. possess or consume alcohol or illegal drugs. He must comply with sex offender rules and will be on discretionary GPS monitoring, according to the police department's news release.
