Paul Domanski faces three charges each of first-degree criminal sexual conduct of a person under 13 years old and second-degree criminal sexual conduct of a person under 13 years old, according to court records. He’s being held on a $100,000 bond in the Washtenaw County Jail, records show.
Domanski turned himself in to police and was interviewed by detectives before being arraigned on Aug. 5, court records show.
Court records indicate the initial offense date is from Jan. 1, 2007.
Pittsfield Township Deputy Police Chief Gordy Schick said police in Sylvania, Ohio, notified Pittsfield Township police investigators of the alleged sexual assaults. It's unclear why the sexual abuse came to light in Ohio.
Domanski was in court for his first preliminary exam last week, which was adjourned until Aug. 27.
He is being represented by Brian Stacey. AnnArbor.com left a message seeking comment on the case with Stacey Thursday afternoon.
Sexual penetration of a person under 13 years old constitutes first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Second-degree criminal sexual conduct can involve sexual contact with a person under 13 years old, as well as many other situations.
If Domanski is convicted on any of the first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges, he could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
