This is a very perverted world we live in today and we must look after our children. A doctor in Muskegon Township, Michigan recently examined a 6-year-old girl has been infected with a sexually transmitted disease. This examination led authorities to a 33-year-old man who has been charged with raping the child.
According to recent reports, a warrant was signed charging Brian Lee Gillespie, 33, of Michigan, with criminal sexual conduct, first-degree, which involves penetration, said Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat.
Brian Lee Gillespie was charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first-degree because this is the maximum penalty for that sex offense. He will be facing life in prison or any number of years the prosecution feels like he deserves.
Brian Lee Gillespie has also been charged as a repeat offender for an obstructing and resisting police conviction from 2012.
Maat said Gillespie allegedly raped the girl at a Muskegon Township House from January 2013 to September 2013. An investigation was started after Child Protective Services was contacted after a physician confirmed the child had a sexually transmitted disease.
CPS and Muskegon Township Police officials then launched a joint investigation which led them to Brian Lee Gillespie.
Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat refused to say how Gillespie knew the child as a way to protect the young victim’s identity.
The child’s mother has been very helpful with the investigation, according to Timothy Maat.
Brian Lee Gillespie was recently captured by authorities. He is currently sitting in the Muskegon County Jail and is being held on $200,000 cash bond. As of 1 pm Thursday, Oct. 2, he had not yet been arraigned.
