Prosecutors Allege Guilt of Firefighter

January 25, 2012

DETROIT, Mich. (My TV20 News at 10) --- A River Rouge firefighter will stand trial on charges he repeatedly raped his own, underage daughter.

He waived his right to a preliminary examination today in Romulus. We are deliberately not showing his face or naming him to protect his daughter.

The man will be arraigned in Wayne County Circuit Court February 1st.

Prosecutors claim the 48-year-old first attacked his daughter when she was 13 years old.

Judge Brian Oakley ordered him to stay on a GPS tether. He also refused the prosecution's request to increase the suspect's bail.
