Two Houghton County teens have a nearly month-long break in their case concerning criminal sexual conduct charges.

18-year-old Benjamin Hyrkas of Lake Linden and 17-year-old Devin Angers of Mohawk are facing multiple charges stemming from a February incident in which the two teens allegedly assaulted an unconscious victim after a night of drinking.

They are both charged with third–degree criminal sexual conduct.

Now that their preliminary exam has wrapped up, several witnesses are scheduled to testify when proceedings continue on July 21st.

Both teens are facing up to 15 years in prison.
