Milford police have assisted Oakland County Sheriff’s Department Highland Substation deputies in responding to a potential third-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC) case involving a 16-year-old girl.
Authorities were called to a residence on River Oaks Drive on Dec. 31 after two 16-year-old girls were dropped off there. One of the girls’ parents stated the girls were in a highly-intoxicated state when they were dropped off.
One of the girls is a Milford resident who allegedly was so intoxicated she could barely speak when called upon.
The other girl, a Highland Township resident, spoke with police, stating the pair drove to Striking Lanes in Hartland to meet up with two guys. She said that they then left for Highland Greens and a house party, where she and her friends took three shots from a vodka bottle.
She told police that she and the suspect started making out and things got out of control, and she admitted that they had sex in a bathroom and that she didn’t refuse.
The victim told police she met the suspect, 26, through a friend about a month ago. After the party, the suspect and his friend drove the girls home.
While 16 is the legal age for sexual consent in Michigan, the suspect could face charges of furnishing alcohol to a minor, which in this case could constitute third-degree CSC.
The victim blew a 0.152 percent blood-alcohol level when administered a preliminary breath test, while her friend blew a 0.163 percent.
The case has been forwarded to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department.
