Michigan State Police say an arrest has been made following an investigation into an alleged incident from the summer of 2018.
Troopers from the Coldwater Detachment arrested 18 year old Jacob Beatty of Adrian on New Year's Day on a charge of First Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct and accosting a child for immoral purposes.
The alleged assault happened July 15 at a residence on Arney Road in Sherwood Township. Beatty was at the home of his 22 year old cousin and her four year old son. According to investigators, the child told his mother what happened when she returned to the house and she in turn called the police.
Beatty was arraigned in Branch County District Court. He is being held in the Branch County Jail on a $100,000 bond. He is scheduled to have a probable cause hearing January 15.
