ROMULUS (WWJ) – The preliminary examination for a River Rouge firefighter accused of sexually abusing his daughter has been postponed until later this month.

Defense attorney Ronald French was successful in 34th District Court on Wednesday in getting the bond for the 48-year-old Romulus man reduced from $250,000 cash to 10 percent of that and a GPS tether.

The man’s 16-year-old daughter has accused him abusing her since she was 13 years old.

He’s been charged with two counts of CSC 1st degree (victim under 13 years of age), three counts of CSC 1st (victim 13-15 years of age) and one count of Child Sexually Abusive Material.

Prosecutors said the man, whose name is being withheld her to protect the alleged victim’s anonymity, confessed to all of the charges and that he has told police he is a danger to himself.

The complaint was reported to the police on December 21, 2011.

He’s expected back in court next month.
