Reed City man charged with criminal sexual conduct involving teen boy
REED CITY — A Reed City man was arraigned last week on multiple criminal sexual conduct charges for alleged assaults against a teenage boy.
Alexzander James Becker, 18, was charged in Osceola County's 77th District Court with three counts of third-degree CSC and one count of fourth-degree CSC.
According to court documents, the alleged assaults occurred between August 2013 and February 2015 in Reed City. The victim in the case is a 14-year-old boy.
The charges state force or coercion were involved.
Third-degree CSC carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison. The offense is a Tier III offense under the Sex Offender Registration Act unless the court finds the victim was between the ages of 13 to 15, consented to the conduct and the defendant was not more than four years older than the victim.
A preliminary examination for Becker is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 23, in Osceola County's 77th District Court. Becker's bond was set at $100,000.
