The case of a Bevier resident was bound over to circuit court last week.  According to online court documents, Michael Coons, 23, was charged in September with statutory rape and endangering the welfare of a child after an investigation revealed his alleged sexual relationship with his 15-year-old victim.

The court approved a bond reduction to $5,000, cash or surety.  Coons waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will next appear before a judge on the 12th of November.
