Mateen Cleaves Charged In Sex Assault Case
Cleaves, 39, will be arraigned on Thursday on multiple felony charges. Those charges are unlawful imprisonment, assault with intent to commit criminal sexual penetration, second-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
From the Detroit Free Press: “The evidence in this case will show that the alleged actions of this defendant were not only criminal, but arose out of a sense of entitlement sometimes found in prominent people,” Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a released statement.
Cleaves' case was transferred from Wayne County to Genesee county in October of 2015 for fear of a possible conflict of interest with a witness in the case.
Cleaves is set to turn himself in on Thursday to Flint police at the 67th District Court.
