Michigan State Police say an Atlanta man has been charged with criminal sexual conduct with a victim under the age of thirteen.

On Mar. 14, a trooper was dispatched to report of a minor that says they were sexually assaulted in Boyne City between Sept. 2011 and June 2019.

The investigation led to an authorization of a four-count arrest warrant for Ryan Simmons, 36, of Atlanta.

The MSP Gaylord Post says they worked with Child Protective Services and the Women’s Resource Center in Emmet County to conduct an interview with the victim.

From there, the investigation led to arrest warrants being authorized by the Charlevoix County Prosecutor’s Office for Simmons.

Troopers say Simmons had been living in the same residence as the victim when the crimes occurred. He was arrested Thursday.

Simmons has been charged on three counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree with a victim under thirteen, and one count domestic violence.

He is expected back in court in early June.
