Trial scheduled for former MarqTran bus driver facing CSC charges

A trial is scheduled for a Marquette County man accused of sexually assaulting a disabled woman on a MarqTran bus.

William Arbelius, 62, of Negaunee will appear in Marquette County Circuit Court September 23 for a three-day trial.

He is facing three counts of second degree criminal sexual conduct to a mentally challenged female.  He stood mute to those charges at his arraignment earlier this month.

Arbelius was a former MarqTran bus driver and Republic Township Police Officer.

He is scheduled to appear in court on August 28 for a final pretrial conference.
