ROMULUS (WWJ) – A 29-year-old Romulus man who allegedly raped his 15-year-old stepdaughter has been charged with seven felony counts in the case.
Christopher Joseph Jordan was arraigned Wednesday in 34th District Court on three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, and three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Bond was set at $500,000.
Romulus police say a months-long investigation was launched back in October 2017 after they were contacted by the Canton Police Department about Jordan. The investigation revealed, according to police, that Jordan had been sexually assaulting his stepdaughter. The assaults date back to October 2016, police said.
Jordan remains in custody. If he posts bond, he will be placed on a tether and ordered to have no contact with the victim or her family. He’s due back in court for a probable cause hearing on Jan. 31.
An investigation is ongoing. Police are asking anyone who believes they may have been victimized by Jordan to contact detectives at 734-941-8400.
