Beatty was charged Thursday morning on two counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim under 13, one count of accosting a child for immoral purposes, two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon and one count of possession of ammunition by a felon.

Beatty is expected back in court in mid-June.
