Kiogima bound over to Circuit Court in CSC case
Melvin Kiogima II (Emmet County Sheriff's Department / May 3, 2013)
Melvin Lee Kiogima II, 35, is facing charges for two counts of criminal sexual conduct-third degree as well as a single criminal sexual conduct-second degree count. No trial date has been scheduled at this time.
Kiogima II peacefully surrendered to law enforcement officials and was arrested on March 21, following an incident involving a 16-year-old girl at his Valley Ridge Drive home on Feb. 26.
According to a police report, the unnamed female was visiting Kiogima and was awaken shortly after midnight while being touched inappropriately.
The victim pretended to be asleep during the event, then — following Kiogima’s alleged pleas the next morning for the girl to not inform her family of the incident — demanded to be returned to home.
Michigan State Police were contacted on the same day with a subsequent DNA test confirming Kiogima’s DNA was found on the victim.
Following his arrest, Kiogima posted $10,000 bond where one of the conditions is to not contact the victim.
