Osceola Man Charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct

An Osceola County man pleads guilty to criminal sexual conduct. 34-year-old Lauren Davin Derscheid, of Evart, was in the Mason County Court on Tuesday, according to the Mason County Press. 

Derscheid was arrested in August on charges of CSC in the third degree, sexual penetration with a child between 13 and 16, and CSC in the fourth degree. Derscheid testified that in June of last year, he met a 15-year-old girl while hiking at the Ludington State Park, in which he then had sexual intercourse with. However, he claims that he was unaware the girl was 15 until after they had sex. Derscheid accepted a plea agreement which drops his first two charges but adds attempted CSC in the third degree. He will be sentenced on January 7th.
