Clare County Man Arrested for Sex Crimes Against Boy

Posted: Updated:

Joshua Cooper is now facing two felony charges for the sex crime.

Deputies arrested Cooper for failing to verify his Hayes Township address as a sex offender on Sunday.

Then they found out he may have committed a sex crime against the child.

Cooper was convicted of a similar crime five years ago when he was only 13 years old.

He served several years in a juvenile facility and received treatment.

But sex abuse counselors say for some people treatment just doesn't work, it's part of who they are.

9&10 News' Eric Lloyd spoke with a local counselor about rehabbing an offender and has more details.
