Antrim County Deputy Accused of Sex Crimes in Jackson

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.
