Mecosta Co. man faces new felony charges in connection to sex crimes

 

A new victim has come forward accusing a Mecosta County man of sexual assault.

 

39-year old Paul Alexander Smith of Barryton was arraigned on two felony counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct involving a minor.

 

According to court documents, the alleged incidents took place between 2007-2013 in Big Rapids.

 

Smith was charged in a separate case last week with sex crimes involving a minor. Those alleged incidents took place between 2015-2017 in Sheridan Township.

 

Smith faces up to life in prison, if convicted on the charges. His bond was set at $1-million dollars.
