Adjournment in Bruce Crossing Abuse Case

There’s no new court date yet for an Ontonagon County man arrested in Nevada back in December on child sexual abuse charges.

50-year-old Patrick Nippa of Bruce Crossing was scheduled for arraignment in Ontonagon County Circuit Court yesterday.

But there’s been an adjournment in the case and a new date has not been set yet.

Nippa is still in the Ontonagon County Jail on $3 million bond.

He’s facing 14 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The charges involve several alleged victims.

Nippa was arrested a few days before Christmas at a casino near the Nevada-Arizona state line.

At that time, State Police from the Wakefield Post said the charges dated back more than 20 years.
