Man found guilty on CSC charge

Man found guilty on CSC charge

A former Cedar Springs man has been found guilty of first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges.


According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, Sgt. Ed Good began to investigate Jason Lee Shaver, 27, of Grand Rapids in August 2009, after a concerned parent called to report possible criminal sexual conduct that occurred in July at an address in Cedar Springs. When Shaver heard there was a felony warrant out for his arrest, he turned himself into police and was lodged in the Kent County Correctional Facility.

As Shaver fought the charges against him, additional information was received from Detective Ed Kolakowski, Kent County Sheriff Department. A jail inmate provided information about conversations he had while in the same jail cell with Jason Shaver.

After declining an offer from the Prosecutor’s Office, Shaver went to trial on September 7, 2010, in 17th Circuit Court.  The jury came back with a guilty verdict on Friday September 10.  Jason Shaver was found guilty on two counts of CSC 1st degree. Both of these charges carry up to a life sentence.

Sentencing was scheduled for October 7, at 2 p.m.
