Former Tribal Council Member Derek Bailey Charged With More Sex Crimes

More sex crime charges filed against a former Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians tribal council member.

Thursday Derek Bailey was charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Grand Traverse County.

That’s on top of five sex crime charges in Leelanau County filed back in May.

Bailey is accused of sexually abusing two underage victims over a seven year period.

He is also charged with being a sexually delinquent person.

If convicted, he could spend up to life in prison.
