BYRON CENTER, Mich. – A 35-year-old Indiana man is accused of driving to west Michigan for sex with a 12-year-old girl.
Brian Carrier was in a Kent County court Wednesday for a probable cause hearing on three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
According to court documents, Carrier drove from Fort Wayne, Ind., to Wayland back in December to pick up a 12-year-old girl with whom he’d been exchanging text messages.
Carrier, was offered a plea deal. His charges could be reduced from three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct to just one count.
As Carrier considers that deal, he’s been bound over to circuit court for trial. He’s held in the Kent County jail without bond.
