He is charged with two counts of child sexually abusive activity, a 20-year felony; two counts of computers – communicating with another to commit a crime; and one count of children – accosting for immoral purposes.
On Wednesday he remained held at the Macomb County Jail on a $75,000 cash or surety bond, awaiting his next court appearance set for Feb. 27.
