Onaway, Mich. — After months of investigating, a 32-year-old Onaway man has been charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct.
Michael Joseph Rigot turned himself in last week Tuesday. The Presque Isle County Prosecutor’s Office issued a five-count felony warrant for the Onaway man.
Rigot allegedly sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl who was also a babysitter for his child. Troopers from the Gaylord Post collected evidence over the following months. They submitted all case-related evidence to the prosecutor’s office in November.
The 32-year-old was charged with four counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree and one count of criminal sexual conduct in the 2nd degree. He could face up to life in prison if convicted.
Rigot was arraigned on the charges in the 89th District Court on January 22.
