Local Sex Offender Arraigned in Court


A man is behind bars Friday following a long investigation into a criminal sexual conduct report.

43-year-old John Sklar Jr. of Mt. Clements was arraigned in district court Friday for two counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of distributing sexually explicit material to children.

The investigation began when a 14-year-old boy reported to police he had been sexually assaulted by Sklar in June 2011. He told officials the incident happened in Delhi Township, where the suspect was then living.

The Ingham and Macomb County Sheriffs issued a search warrant of Sklar's home. The items found are being analyzed by MSP's Internet Crime's Against Children Task Force. 

He's being held at the Ingham County Jail without bond. He's expected back in court January 2.

Sklar is a registered sex offender from a 1998 conviction in Oakland County.
