EVART — An Alma man awaits arraignment today in Osceola County Jail after being arrested for sexually assaulting his daughter, police say.

Michigan State Police troopers from the Mount Pleasant post are investigating allegations of criminal sexual conduct between a girl and her 39-year-old biological father.

The victim is a resident of the Evart and disclosed a sexual relationship with her father at a doctor’s appointment. The sexual activity was said to have occurred in both Osceola and Gratiot Counties. Troopers interviewed the victim and obtained other evidence to corroborate the likelihood of the alleged sexual relationship.

The Osceola County Prosecutor's Office issued a warrant for the suspect on Thursday, charging him with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. The suspect was arrested by troopers on his way to meet with the victim. Troopers will be conducting further investigation and additional charges in Gratiot Counties are anticipated.
