A Cedar Springs man who pled guilty to an assault last summer has now been charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct and other charges.
According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent and 63rd District Court, Austin Lee Mosher, 20, has been charged with one count of Criminal Sexual Conduct 3rd degree (incapacitated victim) and one count of CSC 4th degree (incapacitated victim), both felonies. He was given a $10,000 10 percent bond on the charges and remains in custody.
He also has a separate charge of possession of drug paraphernalia (through the Kent County Sheriffs Department), and three separate cases of probation violation.
The probation violations are related to the assault case last spring, when he wandered up a stranger’s driveway in a drunken state, threatened to kill the man who lived there, and head butted and punched a dinner guest of the family, fracturing the man’s nose. Mosher pled guilty to aggravated assault, but two other counts—resisting/obstructing police and disorderly conduct/public drunkenness—were dismissed as part of the plea deal. He was sentenced to a 335 days in jail, which was suspended, as long as he served 30 days on a tether and abided by the terms of his probation. One of the violations involves not completing his tether, and the others have to do with not completing counseling and restitution.
Mosher will have a preliminary hearing on all the charges on March 21 at 2:45 p.m.
