Man convicted of sexual abuse at Three Rivers, Mich. day care center

THREE RIVERS, Mich. (AP) — A 47-year-old southwestern Michigan man has been convicted of multiple counts of sexual abuse at a home-based day care.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said Cary Jones of St. Joseph County’s Three Rivers was found guilty Friday of six counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of accosting and soliciting a child for immoral purposes.

The Associated Press left a message seeking comment for defense attorney Keith Turpel.

Authorities in January closed the day care center based in the home where Jones lived.

The attorney general says Jones was at the home much of the time that children were being supervised by a day care worker. Jones provided transportation from school to the day care and sometimes was alone with the children.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 19.
