Feds indict Michigan intercourse offender accused of sexually assaulting younger woman

BAY CITY, MI – A Michigan man who has been registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life was federally accused of sexually assaulting a little girl.

A federal grand jury on February 3 indicted Gary F. Sheahan, aged 54, of aggravated sexual abuse and the commission of a sex offender. A conviction of the former requires at least 30 years in prison, while a conviction of the latter requires exactly 10 years in prison. Both charges are also punished with a fine of up to $ 250,000.

The indictment states that Sheahan sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl in Isabella County on December 3. The document does not contain details of how Sheahan had access to the child.

Sheahan was indicted on Thursday, February 24, before U.S. Judge Curtis Ivy Jr., defense attorney Elias J. Escobedo Jr., made a guilty plea on Sheahan’s behalf.

According to records, an Isabella County judge sentenced Sheahan in March 2004 to 13 to 50 years in prison for conviction of first-degree criminal sexual behavior with a victim under 13 years of age. Sheahan had made no objection to the charges. The Michigan Department of Justice released Sheahan on January 19, 2017, and then released him on January 19, 2019.

Because of this belief, Sheahan must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

At the February 24 trial, Magistrate Ivy ordered that Sheahan be held until his current case was resolved. Sheahan’s next court date is pending.
