Hancock man pleads guilty to CSC charge, opts out of trial

A Houghton County man facing criminal sexual conduct charges will forgo a trial after pleading guilty in court earlier this week.

Michael Kangas, 37, of Hancock pled guilty to one count of second degree CSC in Houghton County Circuit Court Wednesday.  Two additional second degree CSC counts were dismissed in a plea agreement.

A two-day trial was originally scheduled to start Thursday.  Instead, Kangas will be sentenced May 19.
