Former hockey volunteer pleads guilty to CSC

A former volunteer with the Houghton High School hockey team made a plea deal in Houghton County Circuit Court Monday in a case involving criminal sexual conduct charges.

Brad Aldrich, 30, pled guilty to fourth degree CSC.  A second charge of third degree CSC was dismissed.

The charges stem from Aldrich’s alleged involvement with a male student at the school.  The student is between the ages of 16–18.

Aldrich’s sentencing date has not been set yet.  Fourth degree CSC is a misdemeanor charge and carries a maximum two-year jail sentence.
