A Marquette man will go to trial next year for child sexual abuse.
28–year–old Axel Acevedo is scheduled to go to trial on April 23rd.
He’s accused of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, second degree CSC and accosting a child for immoral purposes.
The investigation began when the Marquette Police learned that Acevedo was a sex offender who had not registered his whereabouts in the city.
Police notified people at the home where Acevedo had been staying about his offender status.
The mother of a 12–year–old boy living in that home later brought her son to the police, saying the boy may have been assaulted.
Acevedo is in the Marquette County Jail on $650,000 bond.
NMU Public Safety has assisted in the investigation, which is still ongoing.
Police say there may be additional victims.
