A Michigan man is behind bars after a doctor determined a 6-year-old girl was infected with a sexually transmitted disease.
Brian Lee Gillespie, 33, was arrested this week on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, which involves penetration.
A Michigan prosecutor alleges that Gillespie raped the child at a Muskegon Township home between January and September 2013.
Child Protective Services was contacted after the child tested positive for the STD, and an investigation was launched.
It took police some time to track down Gillespie for the arrest. Officials haven’t said how he knows the victim.
Gillespie was arrested Wednesday and remains in jail on a $200,000 bond. His next court hearing is Oct. 9, according to jail records.
He faces up to life in prison.
