Michigan State Police say a Houghton Lake man wanted on a 68 count criminal sexual conduct warrant out of Kentucky has been arrested.
In June, troopers from the Michigan State Police Houghton Lake Post received a request for assistance from the Jackson County, Mississippi Sheriff’s Office regarding a child that had been sexually assaulted in multiple locations over several years.
Troopers say the victim currently resides in Mississippi, but the incidents happened in Kentucky.
On Thursday around 9:30 a.m., troopers arrested a 70-year-old Houghton Lake man on a 68 count criminal sexual conduct out of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Troopers say the suspect, a former resident of Kentucky, was lodged in the Roscommon County Jail awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
