Man Sentenced for Abusing 5-Year-Old Petoskey Boy

A Petoskey man is going to prison for abusing a 5-year-old boy.

Police were tipped off on the possible abuse in Petoskey after the boy was taken in for a doctor’s appointment.

Brian Carver will spend 46 months to 10 years in prison for the abuse.

He pleaded guilty to assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.

His wife also faces child abuse charges, but her case is still moving through the courts.
