"Detectives from the Mecosta County Sheriff's Office followed up on a weekend investigation and arrested 59-year-old Lee Martin Lemerand, 59, on Tuesday."

Nice redundancy!

Stories like this just make me sick.

Just to make my earlier statement a little more clear: Editors should be checking their facts, and make sure the they're not repeating themselves before they post their stories. I know they want to get things online as soon as possible, but they're getting a little ridiculous in trying to be the first to put the story out there.

If he is proven guilty, he needs to be put to death. I am sick of these perverts ruining the lives of innocent children. How many others has he abused and how many more will he abuse if left out in society. Burn, baby, burn!!!!!

This guy needs to be in the cell with BIG BUBBA! And if he is I hope he gets what he did to this child. If this guy is reading this, I need somebody to hang up targets for me at the shooting range. OOOPPPPSSSS!!! I forgot to put the saftey on!

I have to comment on this because its very close to my family. Yes this man does need to pay for what he did and it makes me sick that this happened but it has to go through the justice system. I agree that certain things need to happen to him but I have to believe in the Mecosta County Prosecuter that this will be handled right and that Mr. Lemerand gets his punishment. They do they best they can to get the news out so thatif there are other victims that they can come forward out of the way of the public eye. These children have to be kept safe. What I want to know is how many more victims are there?
