A 64-year-old York Township man accused of inappropriately touching two elementary school-aged children had his preliminary examination rescheduled in district court Tuesday, according to court records.

Frederick Worden's hearing is now set for April 16 in the 14A-1 District Court.

Worden was charged with five counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony with a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Police said the incidents involving two girls known to Worden occurred during the past year and a half at his York Township home and involved "inappropriate touching."

He is being held at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $250,000 cash bond, according to jail records.
