A 20-year-old Kalkaska man is facing several sex charges after police say he assaulted a 12-year-old girl.
The Kalkaska County Prosecutor says that Scott Buning is facing five counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, and two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree.
Buning is also facing one count of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree in Antrim County. It is unclear at this time if both cases are related.
Buning is currently being held at the Kalkaska County Jail on $2-million bond, awaiting his next court appearance scheduled for October 8. If convicted, Buning could face up to life in prison.
Scott Buning was also facing charges in January 2013 with one count of harboring a runaway and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The Antrim County Prosecutor reported at the time that the case involved an 11-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl. Officials have not said if these cases are related.
