Antrim County Deputy Accused of Sex Crimes in Jackson

Posted: Updated:

An Antrim County Sheriff's Deputy that is already accused of one crime, is now facing charges for another.

Michael Bingham is accused of forcing unwanted sexual contact with a woman in the National Guard earlier this month.

Police say the two were in a local hotel room outside of Jackson while the National Guard was there for training.

Here is a statement from Antrim County Sheriff Daniel Bean, “I think it is a shame for everyone involved. I’m not sure where it is at since the authorities downstate are handling everything from here, but I think it is a shame for law enforcement, for family and for all of those who are involved.”

Bingham is also accused of taking money from police during a search in Mancelona back in June.

He is accused of stealing $200 from that home.
